All the world is here. It is there. It is everywhere. All the world is right where you are. Now. This simple, profound, Caldecott Honor story is now available as a Classic Board Book.

Following a circle of family and friends through the course of a day from morning until night, this book affirms the importance of all things great and small in our world, from the tiniest shell on the beach, to the warmth of family connections, to the widest sunset sky.
