Summary
The reader follows a boy and his dog on an imaginative and creative journey that encourages you to notice the wonders of the world, both big and small, in a string of parallels and opposites paired together. The man-made pyramids of Egypt that rise toward the sky contrast with the natural Grand Canyon that dives into the earth. Climbing high to fetch a lost balloon contrasts with diving deep to retrieve a dropped coin. How did the coin get there? What will you do with it? Everywhere, Wonder encourages readers to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary, and then to share their story with others.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Travel with our young protagonist on a colorful journey from the high hills of Japan to the Kenyan savannas, doing everything from navigating an isolated storm in the Coral Sea to having ice cream with a tractor mechanic in Sheboygan. Then open your eyes to the stories around you: Who dropped that penny at the bottom of the pool? Where do birds go when they leave the telephone wire? Now go off and explore your world! This sweet picture book is a petition for children everywhere to open their eyes and imaginations and ignite their natural curiosity to see backstories and beauty in every moment of life. The text is simple and straightforward, and the mixed-media choices are bold and striking (rust-colored pyramids, sherbet sunsets). Written and illustrated by a charming and accomplished husband-wife team dedicated to increasing creativity in both young and old minds alike, this is a worthwhile addition to any collection seeking to increase its focus on diversity and expansive thinking.--Worthington, Becca Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "From the husband-and-wife team behind Babies Ruin Everything comes a sweeping exploration of imagination, appreciation, and possibility. A curly-haired boy with brown skin invites children to follow his lead and find their own story, one that lies in noticing and recognizing the beautiful, interesting things the world has to offer. "So keep your eyes wide open as you go," he advises, sharing his own catalogue: "In Egypt, there are pyramids.... In Alaska, there are cold, wet waters filled with seals and sockeye salmon.... In Sheboygan, there is a tractor mechanic named Shirley who has thirty-seven friends." The boy also notes that wonders can be found close to home: a blue balloon caught in a tree, an unusual looking soup noodle, or a glass doorknob that "makes rainbows when the reading lamp clicks on." Peppered with questions and comments, Swanson's narrative initiates a thought-provoking conversation with readers, and Behr's digitally assembled watercolors create a dreamy mood. Her vibrantly hued scenes of lush jungles, dry savanna, and roads "that somehow never seem to end" paint a vivid portrait of the world's diversity. Ages 3-7.
