Everyone “Everyone” shows your child how he or she is connected to everyone in the world
"Everyone" is a first lesson in globalization for kids. Inspired by "I, Pencil: My Family Tree as Told to Leonard E. Read" by Leonard Read, "Everyone" begins by asking the child how many people he or she knows. It then develops five independent storylines, each based on a worker from a different part of the world, such as: an Indian father who is a miner, an American lumberjack mom, and a Chilean housewife. The storylines converge with each turn of the page, eventually leading to the child who is reading the book.
The child reader is shown that everyone around the world is different: our languages, clothes, music, food, religions, bodies, histories, and colors. If we all met, most of us could not talk to each other. We might not even like each other. Yet, somehow, we all cooperate to create things without thinking about it.
