Leo Buijs about this book: "Children Around the World" is a collection of photos and identifying captions, that bring smiles to your face. Forty colorful photographs by the author that were selected from his extensive world-wide travels over the last decade. You feel the wonderful energy of the young children engaging in their everyday activities. He obviously has a knack for catching heart-warming images of children, whether it is shoeshine boys in Quito, Ecuador or young gauchos near San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. The handsome booklet is an ideal tool to show children, your grand-children, how children live in the rest of the world. They are not your usual dramatic, sad pictures of war-torn countries, but happy children from a great variety of countries around the globe. Each picture will make you feel like you've taken a mini trip around the world, without having to leave your living room. This 9"x9" booklet will give you a warm and fuzzy feeling about the joy and wonder of being a child no matter where he or she lives and no matter the circumstances.
This book would be a great gift for a young or not-so-young photographer or for anyone who just wants a "feel good" experience. And on top of that, 10% of the sales will go to UNICEF Canada. How appropriate is that?
