Photographs of children in classrooms all over the world enliven this brief text that affirms the universal importance of education. “There are many kinds of schools” are the large-type words on one two-page spread containing photographs of Aboriginal children taking notes in an Australian classroom, children in Mali studying outdoors, children in India studying outside at night, and two home-schooled children in France. Subjects such as reading, writing, math, science, geography, language, physical education, and art all are included in the short narrative of this friendly, appealing volume. (Ages 5–7)
