Everybody's Somewhere is a rhyming concept book that explores a sense of self and place. Global in scope and culture, the cheerful artwork in bright but softly muted tones,shows a wide variety of children and adults from a wide variety of settings and locations—a city, a farm, a person in a wheelchair, campers, a soldier, and more.
Each of us is somewhere
Here or there.
Each of us is someone
In our own somewhere.
This is a fine choice for storytime. (Read it first so as not to stumble over the rhyme.)
My copy of Everybody's Somewhere was provided by the publisher at my request. It will be donated to the preschool where I read it this morning. The teacher was quite taken with it and loved the illustrations. 😊 The kids enjoyed it, too!
