Winner of the Selo Catedra Award, Brazil in partnership with UNESCO

Gorgeous, fascinating and heartwarming, this is a book to put a smile on your face. In 2013, aged five and a half, Toby decided to write a letter to someone in every single country in the world. His Mum Sabine, embraced the challenge and started to seek out people who would be interested in writing back to Toby. A website was started as a means of storing the letters, social media leapt aboard and Toby’s dream started to come true. This is a book containing just a few of the letters, to and from the world, and what a special book it is too. Suitable for children as well as adults, each letter is a snapshot of the country and the people that live there. You can dip in and out, and each time you visit somewhere new, learn something new and wonder at the magic that has been created. In ‘Dear World, How Are You?' you can see how Toby has spread love and cheer around the globe, one letter at a time, how fabulous! ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Dear World, How Are You? by Toby Little

When Toby Little was five years old, he decided to write to someone in every country in the world. With the help of his mum, Toby started handwriting and posting letters to everyone from research scientists in Antarctica to game-keepers in Chad and even the Pope.

Not only did Toby achieve his goal but the world wrote back. Dear World, How Are You? is a collection of the most fascinating and heart-warming letters he sent and received. It shows that the world is only as big as your imagination and is full of potential friends, waiting to be discovered, no matter where you live.

About the Author

Toby Little

When five-year-old Toby Little asked his mum, Can I write a letter to the world? she never imagined that a little summer project would turn into a two-year challenge, leading to news stories across the globe. Toby has now written, with the help of his mum, Sabine, letters to all 193 countries, and all the US states (the only one he's not heard back from, at the time of writing, is South Dakota ...). Toby loves learning at school and is keen on archaeology, history and, particularly, fossils.
