Everybody's Somewhere

This is a beautifully illustrated, sweet, rhyming book aimed at young children (3-5 years).  It would make a lovely bedtime/storytime read along. 
Everybody's somewhere, where are you?
I'm right here, I'm somebody, too.
Some are in the country, some are in the town.
Everybody's somewhere, up or down.
Author Cornelia Maude Spelman has a series of books about feelings and how we deal with them. This book is a little different.  In cheerful rhymes it explains that everyone is somewhere, even when we can't see them.  The book is colorfully illustrated by Alea Marley and the art coordinates and supports the text wonderfully.

I can imagine this book might well be helpful for children who are dealing with separation anxiety or sadness when a primary caregiver has to be away at work/deployment etc. It's a very short book (32 pages) which is exactly the right length for a story read-together.

Five stars for the art and text.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher.
