Mary now has many friends and enjoys playing and learning with them. Her class has students from all over the world. To represent and showcase this diversity, a multicultural event was hosted by the third-grade teachers and the students were asked to bring food from their home countries. All students enjoyed tasting a variety of cuisines and many children and parents also wore their traditional clothes. The event provided an opportunity for students to learn about the cultural backgrounds of their friends and develop an appreciation for them. As in the previous book, coloring pages are included for the young readers.

    “Mary and the World Table” is a truly enchanting children's book that celebrates the beauty and importance of diversity. It helps open children’s eyes to the richness of different cultures and the value of embracing diversity. The story follows Mary, who is differently abled and her 3rd Grade classmates as they encounter families from different backgrounds, each with their own unique traditions, languages, and customs. The book beautifully showcases the vibrancy of multiculturalism, teaching children that our differences should be cherished and celebrated. One of the book's greatest strengths lies in its ability to make diversity relatable and accessible to young readers through both food and school life. The vivid illustrations are also a standout feature, immersing readers in the diverse cultures highlighted. As an early years educator and as a primary/elementary school Principal of many years standing, I can recommend this book as an essential resource for early readers and their teachers in the promotion of empathic understanding of others.
