Cover: Around the World Right Now

In this multicultural travelogue through each of the 24 time zones, young readers are invited to travel the world and experience all the people, places, and things that exist on our planet right now. In every minute of every hour of every day, something wonderful is happening around our world. In Santa Fe, New Mexico, an artist sits behind his easel working on a painting. While at the same time in Greenland, an Inuit boy begins training his first pack of sled dogs. While in Madagascar, a playful lemur is trying to steal treats from a family's picnic, just as a baby humpback whale is born deep in the Pacific Ocean. A perfect read-aloud to help introduce geography and time-telling as well as a celebration of the richness and diversity of life on our planet.
