Grandpa says circles are all around us. He points to the rainbow that rises high in the sky after a thundercloud has come. "Can you see? That's only half of the circle. That rest of it is down below, in the earth." He and his granddaughter meditate on gardens and seeds, on circles seen and unseen, inside and outside us, on where our bodies come from and where they return to. They share and create family traditions in this stunning exploration of the cycles of life and nature.

This is a debut picture book for Xelena Gonzalez and Adriana Garcia.

|All Around Us begs to be shared over and over. The use of lines and strokes conveys energy, spirit, magic. And I love the way it connects us all to the idea that we come from inside, from the earth, from something gentle and primal, and that is where go back to—and we better take care of it. Yuyi Morales
All Around Us is a quiet, beautiful story, and is highly recommended. De Colores
The author's direct approach and light touch soften the otherwise weighty subject matter. ... Life-affirming in its quiet splendor. Kirkus Reviews
All Around Usis all about connections, graced by ethereal images—the perfect children's book for this season of celebrating endings and new beginnings. Lone Star Literary Life
A girl and her grandfather contemplate circles, both physical and metaphorical, in this thought-provoking tale of family, community, and interconnection. Publishers Weekly
It's gorgeous, quite frankly. Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal
