Widening horizons

"Young readers continuously shuttle between their immediate world and the world of books to make sense of both... With the objective of communicating to children the issues and concerns they face in the real world around them Tulika has brought out an anthology entitled One World... The publishers have suggested that the book can be used as supplementary readers in schools. 'Afterword' gives some useful hints and directions in which the young reader may proceed... books such as these will aid in widening horizons for children." - January 1999, The Hindu

Conversational, thought provoking

"All the pieces are well-written... At no stage do any of them talk down to their target audience of not-so-young children. The tone is conversational and thought-provoking, encouraging readers to respond to issues that beleaguer the earth, so that they can make responsible decisions and choices to create a more harmonious tomorrow. The questions included in the 'Afterword' further the desire to discuss and probe." - March-April 1999, Indian Review of Books
