Review:

"Tackling a topic no smaller than the world itself, Scanlon (A Sock Is a Pocket for Your Toes) and Frazee (A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever) invite children to explore a variety of its settings, starting with a beach where a young interracial family plays: 'A moat to dig, a shell to keep/ All the world is wide and deep.' Tucked into a corner of the scene is a farmer's market, which becomes the focus of a subsequent spread ('Tomato blossom, fruit so red/ All the world's a garden bed'). This clever linking of Frazee's blithesome watercolor and pencil-streaked illustrations echoes the book's larger goal: to show the world's connectivity. The lively verse is consistently reassuring, even as life's stumbling blocks get their moment ('Slip, trip, stumble, fall/ Tip the bucket, spill it all/ Better luck another day/ All the world goes round this way'). Frazee's warm, endearing vignettes — a mother studying with her baby, grandparents embracing in their bathrobes — are a joyous counterpart to Scanlon's text. Together they create an empathic, welcoming whole. Ages 3 — 7. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

I am quite picky about children's books- I find many saccharine or inane. This book is beautiful-- the art, the language (which has a poetic rhythm), and the sweet message of family and connection. Best of all it is absolutely beloved by my 19 month old, even though it is certainly designed for slightly older kids. It is so rare to find a book that both he and I love, I can't recommend it enough.

My son is 17 months old and this is one of his very favorite books ...and a favorite of mine and my hubby's too! He will often go to his book shelf and drag all the books out until he finds this one for us to read to him. It is well written with great illustration, and a nice message. Our family gives it all six of our thumbs up!
