As profound as it is simple, this universal picture book celebrates people all around the world as they do the same things in different ways— work and play, laugh and cry, and wonder why. The lyrical story takes us from morning to night, as we all wish and dream under a winking sky. A perfect bedtime read, this is a book about the children of the world for the children of the world.

Reviews
" .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
