Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Summer 2009 Kids' List
“Barbara Kerley's One World, One Day is full of gorgeous photographs, which make clear to our children that we are a global family.”
-- Katherine Fergason, Bunch of Grapes Bookstore, Vineyard Haven, MA


Description
"One World, One Day" uses exquisite, moving photographs and Barbara Kerley's poetic text to convey a simple yet profound concept: we are one global family. This is a sophisticated concept book, presented as an elegant picture book with contributions from top international photographers.
This beautiful photo book follows the course of one day in our world. Sunrise to sunset is captured in the essential things we all do daily, wherever we live in the world, and in the different ways we do them. The first meal of the day will take on a whole new dimension for American kids as an American pancake breakfast is contrasted with porridge in North Korea and churros in Spain.
At the end, each image is reprinted as a thumbnail and accompanied by a detailed caption. Selected images feature photographers' notes that share the thoughts and methodology involved in the making of the picture and reveal fascinating behind-the-scenes information. The photographers reflect on how the pictures might resonate within the theme of the global family. Such reflections are rooted in the life experiences of these well-traveled professionals. Their global viewpoints, in tandem with Barbara Kerley's powerful message, set an ideal example for all future world citizens.
