About the Author

Amy Gibson is the author of three picture books: Around the World on Eighty Legs--a collection of animal poems; Split! Splat!--a young, rhythmic picture book; and Catching Kisses, a lyrical picture book about blowing and catching kisses. She wrote By Day, By Night after seeing a documentary about children orphaned by AIDS in Africa; she sees it as "a book about the children of the world for the children of the world." She was an elementary school teacher before she became a writer. She lives with her husband and three children in Los Gatos, California. amygibson.com.

Meilo So was born in Hong Kong and studied in the United Kingdom, where she graduated from Brighton College of Art. She has illustrated many picture books, including perennial favorite The 20th Century Children's Poetry Treasury selected by Jack Prelutsky and Water Sings Blue by Kate Coombs, which received four starred reviews and won the 2013 Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award. She lives in the Shetland Isles. meiloso.com.

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
