Children's LiteratureThe text in this book is a single poem of praise for our earth that threads its way through splendid photographs of people and places around the world. The message of taking pleasure in observing the beauty that surrounds us is as clear and sharp as the images captured by the talented Lipow. This title does more than double duty as an appropriate title for any Earth Day celebration and a suitable entry for National Poetry Month. It is also a wonderful look at other cultures and earth science discoveries, stimulating questions about the where and whys of the pictures. Universally appealing, this title gives us common experiences of appreciating the world around us and, possibly, prompting readers to want to explore the various geographic regions or to think about how we can all strive together to preserve this beautifully depicted earth. Teachers, parents, or anyone sharing this book can also use it to teach about colors, seasons, counting, locating patterns, as well as training the observant eye to spot similar moments they would want to capture forever. 2006, Charlesbridge, Ages all.
