國際推薦

  這套書提供了能與孩子一起討論國際議題的極佳機會。而對家庭和學校而言,也是一套極高價值的收藏。─《學校圖書館學報》(School Library Journal)

  《世界中的孩子》以簡單的概念、直白的句子和插圖,為孩子說明貧窮、飢餓、自然災害、戰爭、全球暖化、低收入等種種『人們無法控制』的變因,如何為我們生活的這個世界產生影響。每本書的後半部則著重於討論慈善機構和國際組識如何協助解決問題,像是協助建造醫院和學校,照顧難民並提供其他援助資源,幫助兒童度過貧窮和飢餓等。這些敏感的國際議題,此套書卻能以富有同情心、明朗且不偏頗的陳述,不僅能讓年輕的讀者完全理解,並且極可能會採取行動。─《書單雜誌》(Booklist)

  With our 24/7 news cycle and constant access to the latest headlines, the world can be a scary place. Now imagine you're a child trying to make sense of it all! What does this news mean? How does it affect me? That's where Children in Our World can help. This beautifully illustrated non-fiction series takes a timely look at today's biggest issues and sensitively explains the crises that dominate the news in an appropriate way for young children. Each book uses relatable comparisons, carefully researched text, and striking illustrations to help kids understand the many difficulties that children just like them face in the world today. Poverty and Hunger discusses the questions "What is poverty and hunger? How do they affect people in countries all over the world?" It helps children begin to understand the way others struggle with these issues and learn about ways they can help. Where issues are not appropriate to describe in words, award-winning illustrator Hanane Kai uses a deft hand to create powerful illustrations that help children visualize the people impacted by poverty, hunger, war, racism, and more. All of the images are sensitively rendered and perfectly suited for younger children. These books are an excellent cross-curricular resource--use them to explore these important issues and tie them into discussions about food, wealth, compassion, empathy, and current affairs. (Ages 6--10)

Review

  "One of the two new releases in B.E.S. Children in Our World Series--books for kids, aimed at tackling big, global and social issues--Poverty and Hunger helps answer the questions: What is poverty? What is hunger, and how does it affect people all around the world? Educate your kids without scaring them on the topic and give them the power to learn how to help."
  --Red Tricycle, redtri.com

  "The topics of poverty and hunger are treated with honesty and openness. The seriousness of the topic is conveyed in a delicate, yet truthful way, providing just enough information for this age group without getting bogged down in political or controversial aspects. The drawings in this book are beautiful, but utilize muted colors, highlighting the somber topic discussed. Doves are drawn on the end papers providing additional optimism. Highly recommended for public libraries and elementary school libraries."
  --Catholic Library World

  * Starred Review "Poverty affects a significant population of children, and this entry in the Children in our World series aims to explain the complicated topic in a kid-friendly way. Alongside gentle illustrations of a diverse array of children, the text explains not only how poverty and hunger can affect people but the wide array of circumstances, "which are often outside of people's control," than can lead to poverty, such as famine, natural disasters, war, global warming, low-paying jobs, and even systemic poverty. The simplified concepts, straightforward sentences, and illustrations make the tough concepts easy to bear, as does the second half of the book, which focuses on charities that feed the hungry, build hospitals and schools, care for refugees, and offer other assistance to people in need. The resources list includes fiction about children in poverty as well as charitable organizations aimed at helping children make a difference in the fight against poverty and hunger. This is a compassionate, lucid treatment of a sensitive topic that young readers will not only be perfectly equipped to understand, but they'll likely be moved to take action, too."
  --Booklist

  "A powerful opportunity for discussion with youngsters and a worthwhile purchase for home and school collections."
  --School Library Journal
