This book is beautiful! This book says it all. If you were to buy one book to have in your library, this should be the one! It’s almost brought tears to my eyes as the author explains how we are all unite on this one big planet.
I really enjoyed the illustrations inside this book, from how much detail was included, to the color choice, to how much there was to look at, these illustrations were wonderfully done. I was impressed with how the author used an assortment of each topic to get her point across. When she addressed how individuals traveled: she included a rowboat, tugboat, skateboard, taxi, tractor, airplane, hot air balloon, camper, police car, ambulance, race car, wheelchair, pickup, bus, etc. The two pages were full. The author covers a variety of subjects in this book including families, weather, food, what people do, feelings, etc. There was this feeling of love and community that came over me as I read this book, that we all are together on this planet, breathing and hopefully working together.
This is an oversized book (11.25 x9 approx.) with 74 pages. This is not one book that will be read once and put away as the illustrations again, are interesting and many of them have lots of look at. I think this one is a keeper. I highly recommend this one and make sure you read the last page of the book as the author talks about how she arrived at writing this book.
” There are lots of things we don’t know. We don’t know where we were before we were born or where we go when we die. But right this minute, we are here together on this beautiful planet.”
“We humans define ourselves be where we are born, where we live, what we believe, by the clothes we wear, and the languages we speak. But there is no “typical” person. We are all different.”
