Absolutely beautiful book with an important and inspirational message for children and adults alike - take care of our planet, and of our brothers and sisters, the animals. The illustrations are amazing.

This is one of my favorite books of all time. It is such an earthy look at how animals and humans are all connected to this planet. The pictures are fantastic. I love everything about this book.

A great book! I loved it when i was a kid and even when I pick it up and read it today, it is still inspiring.

I reread this book recently and was reminded of how a picture book of few words can contain a truly powerful message. Schim Schimmel's illustrations are gorgeous and poignant. Children and adults alike will be reminded of the interconnectedness of all things, of a primordial world where all beings intrinsically knew that they were dependent upon one another and part of the extended family of Life.

The illustrations are the best part. Animals and nature are made ethereal by an unusual combination of images - dinosaurs in a pristine world overlooking a black starry abyss, a tiger cub curled up with the planet earth, dolphins swimming gracefully through outer space. This book is a reminder of the awe that the universe and its phenomena can inspire and that we humans are a part of that.

Breath taking pictures. I read this to a preschool class today. They were absolutly captivated by the pictures and the story. Even my squirmy kids sat quietly to listen to this story. A great lead in with young children to discuss the importance of being kind to our planet and we are all family. Many said after it was their favourite book they're heard yet.

The art in this book is AMAZING, I recommend this to anyone and everyone. Simple and easy for even the smallest readers, and great book to read to your kids at night.
Our daughter reads this to her animals and dolls - and it is a great way to teach conservation...

Beautiful illustrations (they look like paintings). Not a book that you can easily engage a squirming toddler with.

The illustrations in this are breathtaking, but children would get over it quickly. It would engage them maybe a few minutes.

Great children's book with beautiful artwork and a good reminder on why the earth is so important to take care of.
