There is a Tribe of Kids by Lane Smith is very calming and sweet. It traces the journey of one kid (notice where he starts) through a world embracing a colony of penguins, a crash of rhinos, a smack of jellyfish, and onward through a family of stars and an ocean of blue. The trail of shells leads to a tribe of kids--just like him! The beautiful illustrations are almost dreamy in their color and softness. This is a book to read again and again.
