Description

From two-time Caldecott Winner author-illustrator Sophie Blackall! If You Come to Earth is a glorious guide to our home planet, and a call for us to take care of both Earth and each other.

This beautiful book is inspired by the thousands of children Sophie Blackall has met during her travels around the world in support of UNICEF and Save the Children.

If you come to Earth, there are a few things you need to know . . .
We live in all kinds of places.
In all kinds of homes.
In all kinds of families.
Each of us is different. But all of us are amazing.
And, together, we share one beautiful planet.

This masterful and moving picture book is a visually comprehensive guide to the earth, imbued with warmth and humour, that celebrates the magic of ordinary days on our beloved home planet.

  • An engaging storybook about a single curious and imaginative child
  • Simultaneously funny and touching
  • Carries a clear message about the need to care for the earth and each other

★“Blackall writes in honest, uncomplicated prose, her unpretentious statements all the more resonant for their frankness. She covers nearly every aspect of existence. . . . Blackall’s colorful, clever illustrations feel as though she has focused a giant microscope on the planet. You could spend hours poring over the details on every page. . . . [If You Come to Earth is] a sprawling, ambitious take on some of life’s biggest questions.”—BookPage
