The Whole Wide World and Me

By Toni Yuly
Illustrated by Toni Yuly

A bold, joyful picture book for the very young shows that the natural world is full of wonders — and each of us is a small part of that.

Like a flower in a field . . . Like a cloud in the sky . . . So am I. Just as a pebble is part of a mountain, just as a wave is part of the sea, so, too, is every one of us part of something bigger. With bright collage illustrations and a simple, lyrical text, acclaimed author-illustrator Toni Yuly invites readers to celebrate our relationship to the natural world.

  • A gorgeous new picture book by the author-illustrator of Thank You, Bees
  • A gentle introduction to the concept of relationships between small things (like pebbles) and bigger things (mountains), and a celebration of the ways in which we humans are connected to nature
  • This could be a great selection for Earth Day, Arbor Day, National Poetry month, or other celebrations of nature and language
