“While it will certainly touch new parents, Pulitzer honoree McGhee’s text and Alizadeh’s tender pictures will delight readers of all ages.” Booklist (starred review)

“Striking a resonant chord that is at once intimate and universal, McGhee (Someday) gently explores evergreen picture book turf as a couple welcomes their first child. Incorporating imagery from the natural world, Alizadeh’s breezy illustrations are pleasingly attuned to the author’s spontaneous verse as both reveal the marvel—and regeneration—of human life.” Publishers Weekly

“Smudgily outlined illustrations bring a soft but bright energy to the author’s tender text. Pleasant and sentimental ponderings for new parents and children.” Kirkus Reviews


A celebration of a child’s wonder-filled first experiences, and the love between parents and child, from a Pulitzer Prize–nominated, New York Times bestselling author and a talented illustrator.

Somewhere in the world
the world so far
the world so wide
someone is the youngest person alive.

What will be the first sights they see?
Sun and moon and sky…
the love in someone’s eye?

From the magic of a baby’s first sights and sounds to a wish for a far-off day, evocative text and gorgeous illustrations are imbued with the tenderness felt between parents and child. A perfect gift for new mothers and fathers and anyone who cherishes those unforgettable moments—or dreams of a time when their children will see their own little ones smile at them for the first time.
