All the World

All the World
By Liz Garton Scanlon; illustrated by Marla Frazee
Beach Lane Books, 2009. Unpaged. Picture book.

What makes the world beautiful and wonderful? Is it the bright beaches with shells to gather, the amazing plants and foods that grow in its earth, or all the varieties of people scattered the whole earth over? Luckily, we don't have to choose, because we can enjoy it all, and what's even better, we can enjoy it together.

With beautiful words and equally captivating illustrations, this winsome picture book is sure to sweep you off your feet. It has a very warm, cozy, joyful feel like your favorite blanket or a hot mug of cocoa. The last line of the book is the most resounding, one that will echo in your heart-- "All the world is all of us."
