“SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW”
by Stacey Schuett
Illustrated by Stacey Schuett Publisher: Dragonfly Books
Time zones and the international dateline are at times confusing even for adults. In this imaginative book, children are taught how many very different things can be happening at the same moment but in different places all around the world. Whimsically illustrated and filled with maps, the story illustrates how while a baker slides bread into an oven in Europe, a herd of elephants is asleep in Africa, a pod of whales is singing near Antarctica where penguins huddle and a little girl is sleeping in Madagascar and dreaming about tomorrow. But still elsewhere, tomorrow isn’t a dream—it’s already here.
