Additional Information

Children are never too young to begin exploring the many different cultures that make up our beautiful world. Whether we awaken to the wind blowing from the desert, the spray from an ocean wave, or snowflakes dusting the trees, we all share this truly magnificent planet. Through a young boy's eyes, we visit children from far away places fly kites in Japan, swing through the jungles of Costa Rica, play the didgeridoo in Australia... Marty Husted's vivid watercolors flow perfectly with Jane Hoffelt's thoughtful poem, helping us feel the depth of our global connections.

As we turn the pages of this book, we enter the mind of a thoughtful young boy as he muses over countries in the world that are far away and maybe vastly different from his own. While gazing out over a hilltop, he begins to realize that even though the places may be far away, they must be the same in many ways because we share one world.

Even though Tanzania is a long way from where we live, we share the same sun. The children there play under the brilliance of golden sunbeams, just as we do.

The wind that blows the kites of children in Japan is the same wind that ruffles wisps of hair on the heads of our children. Russia may be cold and snowy, but snowflakes taste the same to all children. Other languages may sound strange to our ears, but the laughter of children everywhere can often carry a more powerful message than words.

As adults, we frequently dwell on the many differences of places like Tanzania, Switzerland, Algeria, Japan, Peru, China,... Read more
Whether we awaken to the spray of an ocean wave, the wind blowing from the desert, or snowflakes dusting the trees, we are part of something truly magnificent. It doesn't matter if we live in China, Canada, Peru or Australia-or whether we work in fields, waterways, mountains, deserts, or cities-the fact remains that we all share one world.

We Share One World is a delightful picture book featuring a heartfelt poem by Jane Hoffelt, and gentle water color illustrations by Mary Husted. Children are never too young to begin exploring the many different cultures that make up our beautiful world. From the fields of Tanzania to the hills of Switzerland, the jungles of Costa Rica to the tundra or Russia, We Share One World conveys the message that we can all dream one dream as we share this world-a dream that all peoples will live in peace.

Depicting various cultures and nationalities-as well as wild animals existing harmoniously-We Share One World is a timely message... Read more
It's no wonder this book was chosen as a finalist for the 2005 Benjamin Franklin Award: Children's Picture Book Category!

As this book so aptly illustrates, we share a truly magnificent planet. The book celebrates what people have in common rather than their differences. And it does so beautifully, simply and memorably. The story is told from the viewpoint of a young boy who "views" scenes from other countries, while the text points out that children everywhere share one sun and moon and many other things. From coastlands to heartlands, from China to Iraq to America, people are more similar than they are different, the boy realizes. At the end, all the children, in different, colorful traditional garb, unite - as do all the planet's animals. This lovely, gentle book celebrates all life on earth and exhorts us to live together in peace. The illustrations are vivid and magnificent. And the inclusion of Buckminster Fuller's unusual world map is a wonderful, thought-provoking... Read more
