In this noble health-concepts book developed by The Global Fund for Children, beautiful, color-rich photographs show kids worldwide with what every child should have access to: healthy food, clean water, safe shelter, hygiene, play, and caring adults. A simple sentence describes the action on each spread. An appended note expands on the concepts, and a color-coded map identifies the photos' origins.

Gr 2–4—This book contains full-color photographs of children from around the world practicing healthy habits. The emphasis is on good food, clean water, safe homes, proper medical care, and family/community support. The outstanding photographs are clean and crisp and set against vibrantly hued backgrounds. An introduction by Melinda Gates explains that while all children still do not have access to everything they need, progress is being made. An afterword details all the things needed to be a healthy child and offers suggestions for how youngsters can make a contribution to achieve a better world both in their own community and around the globe. Good for browsing and as a discussion starter.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ
