With vibrant artwork and an affecting poetic text narrated by the Earth, this magnificent ode to our planet serves as a call to action.

I am the Earth.
All yours to share.
The mountains and the Arctic air. . . .
And now you're here, so small and new--
a tiny little dream come true.

Don't worry. I'll take care of you.
Will you take care of me?

Told from the perspective of the Earth, this moving picture book--part love letter, part rallying cry--tours the epic and ordinary wonders of the natural world and entreats us to do our bit to help the planet in turn. Combining Frances Stickley's welcoming, rhyming text and spectacular artwork by best-selling illustrator Tim Hopgood, this enchanting celebration is essential reading to connect young minds with the beauty of nature.

🌍️ Earth Day Children’s Book Review! 🌎️⁠

Looking for a book to talk to children about their relationship with the Earth?⁠

⁠This is a beautiful story told from the perspective of the Earth. The words and illustrations showcase the beautiful wonders of nature. There is also rhyming throughout that tie the illustrations and story together. ⁠
As I read this book, it really felt like a love letter from the earth to a child. Asking the new generation to grow with her and take care of the Earth as she shares all of the glories of nature. The Earth appeals to the child to be a partner with her and help her when she is need. It’s a great opportunity to discuss with your young reader the relationship between people and the Earth. ⁠
