by Deborah Wiles, Illustrated by Andrea Stegmaier
Children will learn to both celebrate diversity and embrace how much we all have in common.
In We Are All Under One Wide Sky, Deborah Wiles beautifully weaves together images from the natural world in a lovely, lyrical poem. Andrea Stegmaier's fresh and captivating illustrations feature children from around the globe and celebrate different architecture, landscapes, and activities.
By the end of the book, children will have internalized the message that although we are from different places, we are the same in so many ways. What we have in common is what is most important--family, laughter, love, nature, and friendship. We all share the same wide sky.
We Are All Under One Wide Sky is a peace anthem with a timely and important message for children: to both celebrate diversity and embrace how much we all have in common.
