One of our favorites in The O'Regan household for a few year now is Liz Garton Scanlon's peaceful All The World. Miss Nancy at The Storybook Shoppe recommended it to us a few years ago and it's a treasured favorite. With Caldecott Honor Medalist Marla Frazee, this beautifully illustrated book lets children know everyone in the world is connected and the world is much larger than just them alone. It's a book about harmony, peace, family, the environment, and respect. Though the topics are abstract, I believe the overall message is very clear.
Molly and Connor love the rhythm of the simple sentences like this one. There are endless things to search for in the detailed illustrations.
The ending, resounding message is "All the world is all of us." It's opens a broader discussion about what that means.
