This book was not what I was expecting it to be, in the best way. It wonderfully and beautifully explained how the Earth is always with you in various ways. From the oxygen plants give, to the coral reefs that protect us, to our lovable pets. Each aspect of the Earth and all its tiny creatures are with us, helping us grow and thrive. Soyeon Kim’s illustrations were breathtaking, creative, and unique. The author brought so much into perspective without losing the magical feel of it. Easily one of my favorite books.
I would highly recommend this for anyone to read, not just children. This book spectacularly described how the Earth takes care of us everyday, in so many small and big ways. We may not be able to see or notice how the Earth provides for us, like the coral reefs protecting us from storms, or microorganisms protecting our bodies, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t protected. This book put so much into perspective for me, and I’m an adult, I can’t imagine what it would do for children. As I mentioned earlier, what with current topics surrounding the planet nowadays, this book is perfect for anyone to read who wants to care for the Earth the same way it cares for us. I can’t recommend this book enough.
