One Moment in Time

It’s 7 o’clock in the morning in Mexico, and Javier is eating his breakfast. He’s having corn tortillas with beans and a glass of orange juice.

And at exactly the same time…

…it’s 8 o’clock in the morning in New York City. Kayla is getting her schoolbag ready. A yellow school bus will take her to the school gates.

One Moment in Time is a lyrical celebration of diversity with a heartfelt message of unity. Featuring eleven different children, this book takes readers on a colourful, eye-opening journey around the globe in a single day, showing what children in different countries are each doing at the same point in time. 

From travel writer Ben Lerwill, and with beautiful illustrations from Alette Straathof this non-fiction picture book introduces children to different cultures around the world.
