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?

A powerful and positive anthem about the climate crisis, strikingly illustrated by Tim Hopgood, which will inspire young readers to care for the planet.

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 charming, rhyming text and spectacular artwork, this book is a magnificent celebration of our planet and essential reading to connect young minds with the beauty of nature.

The life of the entire world and that of this child, planting seeds, tending a plot, and taking care of herbaceous surroundings are intertwined in tissue-paper, collage-like paintings that have the color and translucence of Eric Carle’s work, but are more detailed and representational. . . . Stickley and Hopgood create a reassuring lullaby of faith and cooperation that is accessible to small children, but can launch Earth Day discussions for younger elementary students.
