Review Quotes
"The poem grows in power as it flows along, and is ably supported by Gorbaty's gorgeous, inventive artwork." --School Library Journal, starred review "Ryder's lyrical text invites young listeners to transform themselves into Earth and experience all its wonders.... An obvious choice for Earth Day story hours, this may also serve as a catalyst for children creating their own poetry or as a springboard for creative dramatics."--Booklist
