BIG TINY author Dee Williams will be bringing us her #FridayReads each week! Today: Peter Menzel’s MATERIAL WORLD:
I haven’t kept very many books on hand, but I couldn’t bear to give away Peter Menzel’s Material World (Sierra Club Books). It includes photos of families and all their worldly possessions sitting out in front of their house (if they have a house), so the reader gets this voyeuristic snap-shot of how a Mongolian family lives compared to that of a family in Guatemala, Serbia, the United States or dozens of other countries. It’s a pretty humbling comparison to hold in your hands and heart.
