A Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice selection, 2005 for the Hard Cover edition and 2008 for the Board Book

In the world there is a country

In that country there is a city

In that city there is a neighbourhood

In that neighbourhood there is a street

Children from preschool through grade one relish the discovery of their place in the world Learning the number on their home, the street where they live, the town or city they call home is a comforting reminder to children that they belong Illustrator/author Joanne Fitzgerald gradually takes her young audience from the whole wide world to one bed and the child in it Then she turns the whole thing around:

Me under the bed

Blanket on the bed

Bed in the room

Room in the house

All the way back to the world again

Governor General's Award-winning illustrator Joanne Fitzgerald brings her distinctive bright pallet and warm, cuddly characters to a charming book that will prompt young ones to look outside themselves to create their own place in the world A wonderful support for parents with children ready to learn their address, as well as a perfect adjunct to primary school program units about a child's place in the local community and beyond An irresistible page-turner
