Synopses & Reviews
All the world is here. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; It is there. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; It is everywhere. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; All the world is right where you are. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Now. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Following a circle of family and friends through the course of a day from morning till night, this book affirms the importance of all things great and small in our world, from the tiniest shell on the beach, to warm family connections, to the widest sunset sky
"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.)
