Cool. I like it.

Fascinating. Since the text in the book was written and presented for 9-13 year olds I wanted to buy it and show it to my two youngest nephews. I also just wanted to buy it.

This reminded me of Material World: A Global Family Portrait, a 1995 photo book showing families the world over in front their abodes with all their possessions displayed about them.

I have to say I'm not impressed by the photos I've seen. They just seem...sloppy. And not in a good way.

What a great project. It's a simple idea but quite profound. Thanks for linking to this Mike - I'm interested in getting a copy now!

Peter Menzel is the photographer who did the food project, "What the World Eats", he also did the "Material World" one.
