This volume is part of the World Vision Early Readers series designed for very young children. The aim is to "show how much we share in common, no matter how different we look, what language we speak, or where on Earth we live." Given the large doses of ethnic hatred and violence afoot all around the globe, it is a good thing to teach young children the unity of the human family and respect for pluralism. Mom and Me, written by Marla Stewart Konrad with photographs by numerous photographers, affirms the similarities between nurturing mothers and their children, no matter where they live. The color photographs tell the story of mothers who lovingly carry, feed, comfort, wash, teach, and share kisses with their young ones.
