    One thought on “El Mundo Entero”

    1. Here's what I know. There is no such thing as perfect. Really. But this picture book by my friend Liz Garton Scanlon and Marla Frazee comes close. Liz has written a marvelous poem, but one that's hard to picture. Marla has drawn a lovely narrative, but one that doesn't make complete sense on its own. Together, those slightly imperfect pieces make a perfect whole (or as nearly as is humanly possible to create).As I said in my mention last week, All the World is a work of epic beauty inside a pict [...]

    2. The illustrations are beautiful, big and beautiful. The rhyme that makes up the story is excellent and the story expresses lovely sentiments about the world and about loved ones. The story of a (not perfect but wonderful) day with family, and maybe friends too, is told fully but with very few words. Made me a bit melancholy: those extended families look like fun! But, overall, it’s a very uplifting book. I could recommend this for children ages 2-8; it has wide appeal. Gorgeous and gift worthy [...]

    3. 4.5 out of 5A lovely, heartwarming poem about all sorts of connections (though perhaps a bit human-centered for my liking, especially the last stanza).Yet the best connection in this picturebook is between Liz Garton Scanlon’s text and GORGEOUS Marla Frazee’s illustrations:

    4. I actually prefer this Caldecott Honor to the winner of its year, The Lion and the Mouse. It's original, contemporary, and important, as our world gets more and more crowded with people who don't understand that we are all one global community and each of our choices affects multitudes of others. Would that we all lived as these people do, in harmony, with courage.And besides, it's poetic, appealing, engaging, full of fun & funny details. I hope you all get a chance to read it!Btw, I have en [...]

    5. My favorite children's book I've encountered as a mother so far. The message is even more beautiful than the (lovely) illustrations.

    6. One of the things I have always thought was odd about hard-line Waldorf School philosophy - and before you email me, let it be known that I have one marvelous little cousin and one fantastic grown-up niece who are Waldorf products, and I have no problem at all giving the Waldorfers some of the credit for how beautifully they have turned out so far - but as I said, one of the odder dicta of Waldorf founder Rudolf Steiner, and he had a LOT of dicta, guy was just Mr. Ruley Rulemonger, and some scho [...]

    7. No wonder this was a Caldecott honor book! The poem by Scanlon is beautiful--I wish they had printed the whole poem on one page at the end.Frazee's pictures, done in colored pencil, are soft and lovely, describing a day on the seashore for several groups of people. In many of the scences, Frazee cleverly draws, way off in the distance, the next place that will be visited close-up in the succeeding pages. My favorite picture of all is that gorgeous 2-page spread, done in purple, gray, black and p [...]

    8. The lovely poem has even lovelier paintings illustrating it. The large size of this book gives Frazee the ability to do several smaller vignettes, and interspersed with dramatic double-page spreads. Her black pencil and watercolor paintings not only ably illustrate the words of the poem, but extend them by following several families around. As one family leaves the shore, the reader can see in the distance the farmer's market they will soon be visiting. And at the farmer's market, the reader see [...]

    9. I was surprised that this was published so recently; it really reminded me of the earth-lovin' hippie kid books my parents' friends used to give me when I was small -- only updated so the people would be more in-fashion. I'm not sure the short, rhyming text and illustrations went too well together. The pictures had lots of details that I wanted to spend more time examining, but then the rhythm of the poem was lost.It's cute, though, and kids may enjoy looking at other families' daily activities. [...]

    10. Not my favorite children's book, but the illustrations and poetic text did catch my eye and cause me to ponder about the message portrayed after I turned the last page. A young child might need to have the lyrical verse explained to them, although my nine year old said she really enjoyed the poem and illustrations. If your library has it, it's worth checking it out to enjoy this award winning children's book.

    11. I love, love, love this book. It’s so sweet and the illustrations are gorgeous. I love the message about exploring and appreciating all the different parts of the world. Plus, I bought it at Baby Cotton Bottoms, so it brings fond memories of my favourite baby store.

    12. Great illustrations, but I think the topic is so generic that it doesn't really have anything to say about anything?

    13. A day filled with family and friends.Beautiful artwork. Absolutely loved the illustrations.The text is simple and rhyming. Rock, stone, pebble, sandBody, shoulder, arm, handA moat to diga shell to keepAll the world is wide and deep

    14. This is another book with great illustrations which are big and beautiful. The rhyme that makes up the story is excellent and the story expresses lovely sentiments about the world and about loved ones. I believe anyone can relate to the book of a story that talks about a not perfect but wonderful day with family. Something that did look fun was those extended families. Overall, “All the world” is a very good uplifting book. I would recommend this for children ages 2-8.

    15. All the World, by Elizabeth Garton Scanlon and illustrated by Marla Frazee, is a picture book geared toward children (male and female)in grades K-2. This peaceful story begins with two kids digging at the beach. Rapidly through poetic form and rhythm the world opens to include family and friends. As the day evolves, lives begin to intertwine with one another allowing the reader to see the story travel from the beach to the market to the fields, churches, parks, restaurants, and back to the homes [...]

    16. I remember once when I was little having a discussion with a friend about whether "all the world" was bigger than "the whole wide world." I don't remember which one we finally decided was bigger, but I thought of that conversation as I read this great picture book by Liz Garton Scanlon. What does "all the world" mean? The concept may seem ultra-simple, but it is the type of thing some kids wonder about. I love the conclusion reached, that "All the world is everything / Everything is you and me / [...]

    17. This book blows me away. The debt Frazee owes to Virginia Lee Burton is deep. But this book made me think Burton had died and been reincarnated with a wisdom from looking at the intervening 45 years since her passing in 1968. The expansive double page spreads are up there with the best of Burton's compositions(Life Story is probably my favorite for this). Once again, there is a kind of switching between complementary and counterpoint illustrations in this book that is unusual for today's author- [...]

    18. Amidst the muddled message of the book (which IS muddled, the meaning never quite comes clear) are some of the best illustrations I've seen in a long time, in this book that (finally a publisher GETS it) is a size where you can really just dive in and enjoy the illustrations.There's diversity in the pictures, that mirrors the message well. I love the scenes, the settings. I find myself wanting to visit this village, this place, and join in with these happy people who are my neighbors so that I m [...]

    19. From seashore to garden to treetop to home, this lovely poem gives us a fun recreation of a day and insight into what the world is all about, with the final message that "Hope and peace and love and trustAll the world is all of us". Liz Garton Scanlon leads us through from morning to night with a fun and fast paced rhyme that combines single words in succession with full sentences describing everything from climbing a tree to eating dinner and showing us that into each day a little rain may fall [...]

    20. This book is a poetry book, telling people all over the world’s view, including beach, ocean, farm, garden, woods, road, street, sky, rainy day, cold or hot day, and windy day. All different kinds of weather, environment, light and dark. The author connects them to become a whole view. And then he composes a poem.This is really a beautiful book because all the views are so pretty and so beautiful. Each view has their own background color to represent its features. It’s really a good book and [...]

    21. This is a beautiful story. I would use this book to teach primary grades about the world and different places. It shows an ocean, garden, diner, and different places that a child might go. The images create a beautiful scene that children could connect to. All the World talks about different things you would see in a specific environment such as birds. It also talks about how you feel when you are somewhere. The words sound beautiful when read aloud. I would teach about community and environment [...]

    22. 2010 Caldecott Honor BookAges 2-8Usually I think Frazee’s illustrations of people are somewhere in between Precious Moments and Little Orphan Annie, but in this lovely and poetic book, they have a hippie edge to them. Vignettes of children and adults digging in the sand, exploring, eating, and sitting by a fire alternate with double-wide, day-to-night, sun-to storm, beautiful and sweeping panoramas. Scanton’s poem and Frazee’s illustrations pair perfectly to create the impression of a lazy [...]

    23. The illustrations in this book are phenomenal! The large size of the book does justice to the expansive feel for the double-paged spreads. My first inclination was to categorize this as a mood book because of the poem text. But Frazee's illustrations have created a storyline visually connected to her handlettering of the words. The development of personality for the pictured characters, the building tension and the day's end resolution made the day a story unto itself.

    24. Hope and peace and love and trustAll the world is all of usThe kids recognize this as being the same art as in Seven Silly Eaters so they look for the silly eaters. Of course, they aren't there, so we agreed that maybe the kids in this story are cousins of the silly eaters. I must admit that I let the pictures tell the story and we study all the things the family does (no electronic gadgetry!). I add the words when they feel appropriate.

    25. A book that truly celebrates the beauty in our world. Two small children navigate their ever-widening understanding of life through a marvelous day at the beach spent with family. Sentimental prose and the vibrant, breathtaking illustrations characteristic of the incomparable Marla Frazee combine to form the perfect gift for a young child, a friend, or just about anyone who could use a smile as they turn the pages of this sure-to-be classic.

    26. I bought this book on a whim for my daughter's collection and it quickly became my favorite (she prefers books about owls but she does like this one. 14 month olds. What can you do.)The pictures are gorgeous, and the message is so wonderful and sweet and makes me tear up when I read it. Hope and peace and love and trust, all the world is all of us. Exactly the message I want to give to my daughter these days. I'll definitely be giving it to friends for their babies, too!

    27. Just beautiful. Note for storytellers - I had a serendipitous moment while reading this book to my daughter. This book can be sung almost perfectly to the tune of "Skip to my Lou." I tried it out during storytime - one of the moms strummed along on her guitar while I "sang" the book. It worked beautifully; the kids were spellbound by the pictures, words AND the song.

    28. All the World Children ages 2-5 would love this book for its rhyme and repetition. The story is very symbolic in telling how every thing and every place in the world is connected. This book is from the Caldecott Awards list. KF
