Celebrate empathy, connection, and togetherness with this touching follow-up to the best-selling interactive book Everybody Counts.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday… any day… you may be travelling to the supermarket, the park, or the seaside. But it’s not only you – everybody travels, all the time.

This is a book jam-packed full of heart-warming stories, big and small, all about the human experience. It is a beautiful reminder that we are all ultimately on a journey together!

Each person in this book is on their own personal journey. Whether that journey is in the pages of a story book they are reading, or on an airplane trip to meet a long-lost relative at a family reunion… we are moving, being moved, arriving and departing, all the time.

Read the clues on each page about where that person is going and why. Enter their world and work out their funny, sometimes tragic, bizarre, and ultimately human story on their journey through life, sometimes at the beginning, and sometimes at the very end.

This book can be read on many levels by many ages, with more to discover as children grow up. This makes it a truly sentimental and timeless keepsake that teaches important lessons only when the time is right.

At moments profound, funny and silly, it is a reminder that we are all in it together; a story that promotes compassion and tolerance for strangers and newcomers in their finest and worst moments, and a reminder that we are all somewhere travelling along our life’s path as individuals.
Celebrate empathy, connection, and togetherness with this touching follow-up to the best-selling interactive book Everybody Counts.

Here is a wonderful, empathic, gorgeously colorful counting book. It can be used as exactly that but this is also a title that invites discussion as kids and their adults read the text and think about the people in the pages. This book gives a sense of how interlinked we are.

Note too that the end of the book offers questions and activities. All in all, a really nice book.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this title. All opinions are my own.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing me with this book for free in exchange for my review! All opinions are my own.

I absolutely loved this book because it teaches children about different places and cultures. Unfortunately, I haven't had the opportunity to travel outside of the USA, but its on my bucket list. I can see this being a hit with children who love adventures. It was a very charming and fun read!!

From one person to everyone, this whimsically illustrated book shows how we all travel through life, in ways big and small. This book will appeal to a wide variety of ages, from young children who can enjoy the simple, bright illustrations, to older children who will enjoy poring over the details and finding hidden themes (for example, there is a visual element that connects each page to the next one). Many of the secrets are revealed in the back pages of the book, but that will just encourage readers to go back and see them for themselves. Not to mention that at the back of the book, you discover there are many characters who don't merely reappear, but do so as part of their own individual stories. One character appears over many pages as he falls in love, proposes, gets married and goes on a honeymoon. This sort of storytelling detail elevates it above merely another "Where's Waldo" copy and turns this into a deep, many-layered world that shows how our lives all intersect and interweave, even when we don't know it's happening. I was charmed by this book. I think you will be too.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this eARC for unbiased review. This review will be cross-posted to my social media accounts closer to the book release date.

I really enjoyed this title but would love to revisit it in print form. I do not feel the digital format gave it justice. At first I was confused on the skipping of numbers but once re-reading the book I saw I deeper connection and theme. I feel that the book can be read at a simple level or used with higher grade-levels for discussion on tolerance and empathy. I really like the interactive component at the end as both a parent and teacher. This title would be a great addition to any shelf and make a great gift.

This book is so cute. With its whimsical illustrations and thoughtful text, it is great for a parent and child to read together to try to answer the questions. I loved the sections at the back that tell all about the repeated characters that we see in each illustration and the level of detail that the author went to.

To say I was obsessed with this book would be an understatement.

I initially didn’t understand the reasoning behind the numbers but it quickly became apparent the importance of them.

Not only does this book talk about the joy of travelling and visiting different countries, but it subtly takes about really important themes that all children should know about.

Themes include: inclusivity, dealing with worries/fears, feeling isolated, tolerance and compassion.

It is so cleverly written that these hard hitting themes will not overwhelm the reader and they can be fantastic talking points for children to have with their adult, whether it is at home or at school.

Really beautifully illustrated. I read it as an EArc, and this is not the way I would recommend you read it! I need to get a physical copy asap!

Wonderfully Illustrated. As one another reader here stated, this isn’t a book that should be read in a digital format, I would love to own an actual copy. I can always find a way to use this with my students.

It can be used to introduce numbers and some math concepts too in a fun way. Love the questions at the end - great conversation starters.

This was a cute book and I loved the message about empathy and that everyone is going through something different. The sections at the end offered great ways for children to engage with the content even more. You could pick a few different questions each time you read the book. I thought the font was too small and difficult to read for a childrens book. I found myself straining to read. I think it should be larger and in a color that blends in less.

This book was a spectacular experience. As it starts, it begins with only one person that then grows to all the people on the planet. This progression is a brilliant metaphor used to unite everyone not only on the page but in reality. Because everyone is connected. And the beauty of the pages was highlighted by all the details drawn and given, leading readers to search for little clues and what each person is doing. Because at any given time there is happiness and sadness and mystery and love happening to everyone around the world. And I think that’s beautiful.

I loved the first book in this series, Everybody Counts and so was desperate to read this one. It's brilliant. I love everything about these books and am amazed at how much can be going on at the same time. The planning it must take to create a book like this, where everything means and does something, is phenomenal. There is just so much to do and see and think about. I bought the first book and will definitely be buying this one too and I am sure it will be just as popular.

This was such an interesting book, I loved its message of empathy and it was executed in an inventive way based on numbers of people. Illustrations are really unique and eye catching. Overall a great concept with an important message that is relayed powerfully.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and Netgalley for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

I loved reading this, it shows that so much is going on in our lives, positive and negative and how we are all on our own journey.
