"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. Frazee's warm, endearing vignettes...are a joyous counterpart to Scanlon's text. Together they create an empathic, welcoming whole." -- Publishers Weekly, STARRED
"Scanlon's text has a child-friendly simplicity reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown...All the World will win audiences with a sensibility both timeless and thoroughly modern." -- Horn Book Magazine, STARRED
"It's hard to imagine a cozier and more spacious world. At once a lullaby and an invigorating love song to nature, families and interconnectedness." -- Kirkus Reviews, STARRED
"Liz Garton Scanlon and Marla Frazee capture the give-and-take between comfort and wonder in their exquisite new book All the World. ...Scanlon and Frazee pull it off with brilliant simplicity...Scanlon's verse and Frazee's illustrations play off one another like the music and lyrics of a great song. ... Don't miss this one." -- The Washington News Tribune
"... [a] shining, subtle craftsmanship that moves this title from merely enjoyable to genuinely inspired... In short, it's a moving and accessible celebration of the poetry of ordinary human life." -- The Bulletin for the Center for Children's Books
"All the World pulls off the most magical trick of picture books: To make a grand statement of mystery and wonder in the humble 36-page format of a few paintings and a handful of words." -- Newsday
"Liz Garton's gentle daylight-to-moonrise text reflects and respects this child-centric version of the universe even as it lulls young listeners with rhythms as gentle as waves....Against the backdrop of this almost ethereal text, Marla Frazee['s]...illustrations echo the rhythm of the verse, alternating between sweeping double-page panoramas and vignettes that mimic the motion of the words. Perfect." -- The Washington Post Book World
"There's a wonderful balanced imbalance between the sweeping largeness of the pictures and the spare script of perfectly chosen words." -- The Chicago Tribune
"All the small moments connect to a larger shared experience, Scanlon's (A Sock Is a Pocket for Your Toes) words and Frazee's pictures seem to say... Frazee lets out all the stops... Masterful." -- Shelf Awareness --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
