Trivium Pursuit

Peter Spier and People

You’re probably familiar with children’s writer/illustrator Peter Spier from his book Noah’s Ark. In fact, if you’re like me and look up Spier on Amazon, you’ll find several books you feel compelled to buy!


The Star-Spangled Banner


We the People: The Constitution of the United States


The Erie Canal

But the book I’m most impressed with, and only just recently found at a garage sale, is People. It’s full title is People: A Picture Book for All Ages. Using detailed, colorful illustrations, Spier takes us on a trip around the world showing us how people come in all shapes and sizes, have different tastes, celebrate different things, eat different foods and play different games. Each person is unique and we need to respect each other. Your children will love hearing the various names for similar things around the world.

Only one criticism — I had to use a colored pencil to draw clothes on a couple of the people. No problem.
