If You Come to Earth

We rated this book:


How would you introduce the Earth to a visitor from space? It’s a big question to ask a small child, but young Quinn has ready answers. He starts with our place in the universe and then drops the focus to the different kinds of homes found in deserts, within cities, on water, in trees, and in all other sites found in our world. He stresses the diversity of our populations, different appearances with body types ranging from tall to short, rotund to thin, tall to short, and our varying skin colors.

Marvelous soft-colored illustrations portray the characters, regional foods, the creatures found in the bodies of water, and animals found on land and seen in the air. Wonderful, tactile representations of common objects that have size differences fill colorful pages and invite the young reader to identify these articles as they try to pick them off the pages. Beautifully illustrated, the pastel-toned drawings pull the reader into the story, while the engaging text displays the richness of our world, emphasizing its diversity.

This is a book that embraces an international audience with the message that the reader and everyone else is represented in our world and we all need to look after one another and our fascinating planet.
