Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The title sentiment is expanded to a double-page spread to list the things we all share, like the golden sun, the silver moon, wind, waves, rain, snow, songs, friends, and dreams. On each spread our young narrator observes from outside a frame a scene of children in a different part of that world we share. In all there are eleven different countries, shown on their continents on a small map in one corner. The final message is "Let's live in peace." Naturalistic ink and watercolor drawings depict "typical" scenes in countries on six continents. The three concluding double-page scenes don't have borders. They show a few animals and children from the different countries interacting with each other, a possible reference to a "Peaceable Kingdom." A part of the profits from this book will be donated to The Children's Global Foundation. The end-papers depict R. Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion Map, which show the planet as "one big island in one big ocean." This is a hopeful introduction to many parts of that island for children. 2004, Illumination Arts Publishing Company, Ages 4 to 8.
—Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz

PreS-If only living together in peace were as simple as the vision offered in this book. Romanticized illustrations of people around the globe accompany a rhymed text to deliver the message: "We share one world." In each spread, a boy interacts with children from another country. An inset map in the corner shows the nation's location in a larger context. The idealized paintings feature stereotypical portrayals. For example, the Japanese mother and daughter wear kimonos while the brother flies a kite. In the Canadian forest vista, a bear, wolf, rabbit, raccoon, and squirrel pose calmly while a boy and girl play nearby. At the end, all of the children gather together while doves fly above. More concrete and interesting views of life around the world are apparent in Ann Morris's photo-essays, such as Families (HarperCollins, 2000), or in Barnabas and Anabel Kindersley's Children Just Like Me (DK, 1995).-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    A Timely Plea for Sharing Our World in Peace

    The concept of 'One World' may sound cliché, but there are some basic precepts that can't be over-stressed, especially when it comes to teaching our kids about living together in peace. How well these lessons are taught may well determine the future of the planet! This book has a smile and a message of hope on every page, as a little boy travels the world in his daydream, visiting children from cultures around the world. A charming poem describes his trip though the geography, flora and fauna of each of the lands he visits. 'We touch the wind' among the cranes and kites in Japan, 'We smell the rain' in the threatened marshlands of Iraq, and 'We taste the snow' with Laplanders in the Russian Arctic. All twelve visited regions hold examples of endangered indigenous people, animals or plants, sure to inspire meaningful discussions about the need for global cooperation and peace. Written and illustrated by two sisters from Ohio, it's a collaboration filled with love and hope for the world's children. The timely plea for peace -- and that we share and protect our world despite our cultural differences -- is one that becomes more important every day.
