Book of the Week — All The World

February 9, 2010

I’ve fallen in love with this sweet new book by Liz Garton Scanlon, called All the World. (I’ve fallen in love with Marla Frazen’s illustrations as well.) Reading it is very calming. The perfect book to read right before naptime. It’s a book you’ll be glad is on your bookshelves.

I LOVE this book! The librarian (at the school where I teach) was part of the Caldecott Selection Committee this year. He shared this with us earlier in the year and then again when he returned (as it was one they selected for a Caldecott Honor Medal). Such a beautiful book!

So beautiful! Her illustrations remind me of The Little House just a little in the 'all the world's a garden' picture.

Mikaela – How cool to be on the Caldecott Selection Committee. Totally jealous of your librarian. I heart Caldecotts.

MoolyBee – I can totally see the Little House reference.

Molly – For sure. You have to get it. It's a winner.

red or gray art – I fully agree.

We recently checked that book out at the library. I liked it, but it wasn't one I HAD to have.

One we also recently read that I just had to have was Friday My Radio Flyer Flew by Zachary Pullen.

I've never seen this before, but am heading to the library tomorrow–I hope they have it!

It really is a beautifully illustrated book. I especially love all of the babywearing that happens throughout the book. Gorgeous.

Love Marla Frazee's illustrations in 7 Silly Eaters, too.

This is one of our family’s favorite books! I have been reading up on your posts of children’s books and wondered if I wasn’t inspired to get it by reading this post long ago. One of the best parts is that the dad looks like my partner. Bonus.
