Simple, rhyming narrative and softly textured watercolor and pencil illustrations blend together nicely. It has simple words that are good for beginning readers and a philosophical bent that is soothing and peaceful. I like the multicultural family and and the scene of the whole family together, singing and playing music. The landscapes are beautiful and I especially liked the picture of the mom breastfeeding while reading/working. Our girls liked this, too. Our oldest read it aloud to us.

Favorite quote "Hope and peace and love and trust, All the world is all of us."
