One of the most beautiful children's books around. There is so much to explore in the images, which tell a story all on their own. Breathtaking. My 2 year old asks me to read it about 6 times a day.

One of my favorite feel good picture books. Quietly sends the message that we are all connected in some way, to each other. Lovely illustrations, too!

A beautiful book that made me very nostalgic for family vacations! Visually stunning, and the sparse language lets kids fill in the rest with their imagination. It keeps my 2 year old's attention because of the pictures, and I usually adlib a few descriptions as well. Great for summer time or before bed reading (as it is a little 'slow').

This book has a neat idea; it lists many parts of the world and nicely draws each section into a whole. The conclusion is the same, for it shows that all the previous parts are part of something larger. It is a good book to teach kids how important the little things are in making our world what it is.

As a parent, I loved this book, thought it was beautiful. However, my 3 year old daughter didn't go for it and never wanted to read it.
