All the World
It is there.
It is everywhere.
All the world is right where you are.
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
Frazee's pictures, done in colored pencil, are soft and lovely, describing a day on the seashore for several groups of people. In many of the scences, Frazee cleverly draws, way off in the distance, the next place that will be visited close-up in the succeeding pages. My favorite picture of all is that gorgeous 2-page spread, done in purple, gray, black and p...more
It feels so wonderful to have connections!
At this moment I cannot recall where, a week ago, I ran across the cover image of ALL THE WORLD, but it is so scary beautiful and it so caught and held my attention upon seeing the small online picture of it, that I immediately emailed my friend Michelle at Simon & Schuster to beg for an advance, unbou...more

Application: I would use this book for a rhyming game. Before reading the book, I would have prepared flash cards li...more
What a beautiful treasure of a book! I loved the rocking rhythm of Scanlon’s verse and Frazee’s illustrations appealed to the child in me who still loves Virginia Burton’s The Little House.
Frazee’s illustrations are alluring and winsome. She is deftly inclusive in her depiction of the human race and daily life within a community of people attuned to the natural world, the world as community, and sustainable living (the community...more
