Why I Love This Book: This book explores the Earth in a unique and simple way, with poetic text that inspires imagination and flows beautifully through each page. It celebrates the wonder and beauty of both living and non-living things on the Earth. The illustrations are bright, colorful and creative. I was introduced to this book while student teaching in a 2nd grade classroom. They used the book as inspiration for a beautiful dance that they performed about the Earth. It could easily be used with K-3 students.
