To celebrate what some are calling World Read Aloud Day, I give you some favorite lines from All the World, by Liz Garton Scanlon.
...Road, street, track, path
ship, boat, wooden raft
Nest, bird, feather, fly
All the world has got its sky...
...Spreading shadows, setting sun
crickets, curtains, day is done
A fire takes away the chill
All the world can hold quite still...
...Nanas, papas, cousins, kin,
Piano, harp, and violin
Babies passed from neck to knee
All the world is you and me...
And if you want some more, read aloud, here...
