By Day, By Night By Amy Gibson; Illustrated by Meilo So

Published by (2014-10-01)

This lyrical ode to humanity celebrates people all around the world as they do the same things in different ways, from morning to night: as we're carried first, then toddle, then walk; as we learn to read and explore new worlds; as we wish or dream, laugh or cry, or even wonder why. This universal picture book is as profound as it is simple. A beautiful sentiment to share at story time or bedtime, this book will touch children and adults alike.

" . . . Globalism is the continued theme as So's lively pencil-and-watercolor vignettes show children from many countries engaged in typical activities . . . Delightfully free and imaginative, So's illustrations convey the global message in great depth, accompanied by Gibson's simple rhyming text. . . This unusual picture book will spark many questions from young children about the customs and lifestyles of their peers all over the globe." --Kirkus Reviews

"Simple but uplifting rhyming text recounts the commonalities shared in the lives of children around the world, from simple actions--wash, brush, dress, eat--to universal experiences--wish, dream, laugh, cry, look. . . " --School Library Journal
