A first-ever children's visual reference book on age — and a unique celebration of the diversity of humankind around the globe

For young children, the concept of age is abstract when they don't have a relatable context... until now! This book showcases the faces and life stories of 100 people from around the world in numerical order, from a one-year-old to a centenarian, giving children a reference point for each age. Striking close-up black-and-white portraits are paired with read-aloud text that shares personal experiences, wishes, memories, and emotions, leaving readers with an appreciation and understanding of the ageing process.

Ages 4–8
