The small, labelled illustrations are very appealing for young children. The people have happy faces, and the diversity of characters and activities is very inclusive. A table of Contents allows the reader to choose what theme they might like to examine while a comprehensive index will be useful for those who might like to examine a particular topic, e.g., football. This would be a welcome addition to a home library and very useful for pre-school children.
