Awards & Accolades

“The day-in-the-life continues with a bus to school, the class, a museum, and later on dinner and bedtime! What a sweet way to visit Mexico! . . . A charming way to enjoy tiled streets, sunny sidewalks, and domestic scenes, and to take on new vocabulary” – School Library Journal

“Enriched with frequently used phrases, popular foods, and a sense of the landscape and surrounding architectural styles, the Our World series is not only engaging, creative, and full of detailed, eye-catching illustrations, it's also relatable” – Where the Board Books Are

“The Our World series continues to pack quite a bit of culture for the youngest readers into an easy-to-handle board book” – Booklist
