Parents, grandparents, teachers, and parents-to-be will delight in this collection of pictures of children from around the world. This charming CubeBook compendium of photographs follows the path of childhood from the cradle to first steps, from relationships with parents and siblings to attempts at independence, from games in the neighborhood to studies in school. Heartfelt and infinitely appealing in their unembellished charm, these lovely images—both candid and posed—express emotions and experiences shared by children everywhere, and also reveal the fascinating differences in children around the world. A vast range of cultures is represented in these pages, and the photographs convey in fascinating detail the traditional games, school environments, and family settings of each. From the irresistibly chubby legs of an infant to the tentative first steps of a toddler, from the proud gap-toothed grin of a young child to the shy smile of a preteen, these photographs embody the true essence of childhood.
