Summary
A New York Times bestseller!
Five starred reviews!

Named Best Book of the Year by Barnes & Noble, The New York Times /New York Public Library, Publishers Weekly , and School Library Journal

They All Saw a Cat meets The Important Book in this sensitive and impactful picture book about seeing the world from different points of view by Caldecott and Coretta Scott King Honoree Christian Robinson.

In this full, bright, and beautiful picture book, many different perspectives around the world are deftly and empathetically explored--from a pair of bird-watchers to the pigeons they're feeding. Young readers will be drawn into the luminous illustrations inviting them to engage with the world in a new way and see how everyone is connected, and that everyone matters.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Using simple, lyrical text and expansive, colorful illustrations, Robinson assures readers that, no matter what difficulties they may encounter or how a person might feel, everyone matters: "The small stuff too small to see. / Those who swim with the tide / and those who don't. / The first to go and the last. / You matter." He points out that pests and those they annoy, those who fall and need to start over, and young and old alike are all important. Robinson's stylized acrylic-and-collage artwork lightens up the text with hopeful and sometimes humorous touches. The pest, for example, is a mosquito who bites a Tyrannosaurus rex on the tail, too far away for the behemoth to scratch with its tiny arms. This same dinosaur falls after Earth is struck by a meteor, and later a gassy planet (presumably Earth, post-extinction) renews itself. Throughout, Robinson depicts characters who are diverse in terms of ethnicities and abilities. Nonjudgmental and reassuring, this is a great choice for anyone experiencing a bad day."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Simple and heartfelt, the refrain of Caldecott Honoree Robinson's poem speaks directly to readers: "You matter." In a neat rhetorical twist, the line also refers to the Earth itself, whose evolutionary history flashes by in gently comic collages made with blocky forms and bold paint strokes. Early sea life darts beneath a blue wave, small quadrupeds emerge from the ocean, dinosaurs appear. Under Robinson's broad gaze, everything in the cosmos has a part to play: whether a massive asteroid blazing Earthward ("If you fall down") or the planet, revived, spinning serenely in space ("If you have to start all over again"), "You matter." Human concerns recede in geological time, then come into focus as a brown-skinned astronaut orbits Earth while holding a photo of a child. A page turn shows the child back on Earth looking wistfully out an apartment window: "Sometimes, someone you love says goodbye." Scenes shift; the view from the child's apartment window moves in, from a busy city street to ants dining on park pigeons' crumbs, and then pulls back to a child gazing out an airplane window at an antlike cityscape below. By seeing all life as intertwined--ancient and new, minuscule and gargantuan, "The first to go and the last.// The small stuff too small to see"--Robinson represents life as both interconnected and precious. It's a profound thought expressed with singular focus and eloquence. Ages 4--8. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (May)"
