This is amazing! The different accents may make children appreciate diversity and readily accept people they come into contact with that may come from different backgrounds since they won't sound as strange. Thanks for the interesting review.

This sounds like a great book for children to learn from. The illustrations will please most children.
Your success is not completely deserved, and the failure of others is not completely deserved either :D

Wow! This is a no brainer! Children will be able to learn about the world in it's diversity instead of being raised in a cocoon of ignorance. If you want to travel the world without leaving your home, read a book! And for kids, this is a great start. Thank you.
Very true! Thanks for stopping by!

I could imagine a child's excitement when engaging with this book, such an amazing idea! I love that it depicts less represented cultures around the world. If I had kids, I know I would totally buy this book for them!

Very impressive book to read I must confess. This seems more like a 3D form of children book and it would just be superb to see how this book looks like while reading it on a phone. Already in love with its structure.

This sounds so interesting even for an adult. Children can learn about other cultures a lot by this book. I also love that the author included folklore in appropriate accents. Your review is very thorough and I'm loving the book even before reading it.
