About the Book

New York Times bestselling artist Jane Dyer and acclaimed author Linda Ashman collaborate on this tender story of a mother’s unconditional love for her child.

A seed knows how to sprout. A lamb knows how to bleat. A bee knows where the nectar is to make the honey sweet. Stars shine, seasons change, and waves rise and fall. Invoking the majestic beauty of the natural world, a mother affectionately explains that some things just come naturally—like a parent’s love.  

With poignant illustrations and a timeless theme, All We Know celebrates discovery, new life, and above all, the love between parent and child.

Critical Praise

“Ashman’s poetic verses are perfectly complemented by Dyer’s illustrations which portray the natural world realistically. Simply beautiful.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The simple yet artful rhymes are made to be read aloud to young listeners sitting on their own parents’ laps. Illustrator Dyer is the go-to artist for the softest and sweetest of artwork featuring young children, and she doesn’t disappoint here.” — ALA Booklist

“A gentle, heartwarming celebration of the continuity of life and of a parent’s love.” — Publishers Weekly

This sweet journey of nature and love is wonderfully illustrated with Dyer’s softly artistic and realistic style. She perfectly mirrors the mood and text of the story while providing welcome details and texture. This lovely book is a great read-aloud for storytime or individual sharing. — School Library Journal
