The World in a Second is captured in this picture book by Isabel Minhos Martins and Bernardo P. Carvalho to show the concept of a moment captured in time anywhere in the world.  A horn is being honked in Mexico City, a package arrives at someone's home, or an orange falls in an orchard. The book is simply and graphically illustrated with strong colors and outlines alongside some simple poetic text.  At the end, there's a spread of a world map indicating where each moment took place moving across the world and time. 

Almost every continent was represented in this lovely book. Great for readers of all ages.
