All the Colours of the Earth
A Multicultural Treasury
All the Colours of the Earth by Wendy Cooling
Book DescriptionImagine the brilliant colours and smells of fruits in a Caribbean market, the vast variety of tins and jars in a North American supermarket. Imagine how many kinds of street music there are, the different ways children play with swings and kites and boats. Imagine the different seasons. Then imagine things that are the same worldwide - land and trees and creatures being destroyed, wealth and poverty spreading. Imagine believing in good hope, a future when life will be better...
