It is always amazing to me, although why I don't know, that my granddaughter Meredith and I love the same books, and we always seem to pick winners!

All the World, according to the publisher:

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

All the World, according to me: Oh, boy, here is a good beach book to take with us and it has "Nana" and "Papa" in it, and oh, the poetry:

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

All the World, according to Meredith: Don't turn the page yet, look, Nana!
