Matt Lamothe

Follow the real lives of seven kids from Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda, and Russia for a single day! In Japan Kei plays Freeze Tag, while in Uganda Daphine likes to jump rope. But while the way they play may differ, the shared rhythm of their days-and this one world we all share-unites them. This genuine exchange provides a window into traditions that may be different from our own as well as a mirror reflecting our common experiences. Inspired by his own travels, Matt Lamothetransports readers across the globe and back with this luminous and thoughtful picture book.

Matt Lamothe is one third of the award-winning design company ALSO as well as the coauthor of The Exquisite Book, The Where, the Why and the How, and The Who, the What, and the When . He lives in Chicago.
