From the vast variety of animals that
populate the planet, to the many different
types of homes people live in and the
time zones that mark the days around
the world, P is for Passport is
a book to bring people together. Celebrating
our differences as well as the things
that unite us, this world alphabet will
delight and fascinate parents, teachers,
and especially children.
The illustration for each letter of
the alphabet has been done by a different
artist, to further highlight how we
each view the world from a unique perspective.
"Our world is like a bunk bed;
it has a top and bottom.
And when the top is having spring the bottom has its autumn.
Most folks live in the northern half. Any map makes that clear.
But U is for under, way down under in the Southern Hemisphere.
Australia, South America, New Zealand, too, and let's be more specific.
Part of Africa, Indonesia, and the islands of the South Pacific."
"So you think our world is set
in its ways, that it's hardly ever
Then you should know it's just not so. It's constantly rearranged.
Deep in the earth, it's quite a scene, like a battle being fought.
Gasses burn, lava churns, and it's bubbling, boiling hot.
So V is for volcanoes, sending sparks and lava flows.
Each eruption means a change in the way our planet grows."
