All the World.

All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon,
Illustrated by Marla Frazee

"Rock, stone, pebble, sand
Body, shoulder, arm, hand
A moat to dig,
a shell to keep
All the world is wide and deep."

I picked up a copy of Scanlon/Frazee's book at the library after seeing a mention online and I wasn't disappointed. This children's book offers a beautiful message of celebration for all that is good in the world and lovely illustrations. I have loved and own several books illustrated by Marla Frazee (The Seven Silly Eaters, Santa Claus: The World's Number One Toy Expert) and it is always the artwork in a picture book that sucks me in. This one is no exception. It's no wonder that All the World is one of the Caldecott Honor books for 2009.

Check out a GREAT post on Marla Frazee over at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast.
