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 showing that world peace is possible…and it begins in the heart, one person at a time.
An interesting aspect to this book is the endpapers, which feature a unique map inspired by R. Buckminster Fuller which shows the entire surface of the Earth undistorted, revealing our planet as “one big island in one big ocean”.
If ever humanity needed to be reminded that we share one world and that boundaries, barriers, and territories are all in the mind—whether physical or ideological—it is now.
