I read that for the second time to my youngest son, my 4 months old baby :) ... I'm pretty sure he didn't even care about the drawings & illustrations that caught his brothers' attention, but He was so calm while listening to me reading it :)

It was a relaxing and delightful experience & I feel grateful Al hamdu LELLAH :)


My two sons rated this book 5 stars :)

I bought a copy that is a special edition of the book printed by Nahdet Misr publishing & print
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.

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. This is a reality which the animals, who are tuned in to nature (or G-d's will, however you define ...more

Absolutely mesmerizing. The illustrations are outstanding, haunting, colorful, piercing, and draw the reader right in.

I would love to have these drawings up as prints in my home.

A wonderful way to help our children, and all the people of our planet, that we are all brothers and sisters. With the animals, it is important, to take care of our world.

And as I have said before, "We must take care of all the animals. After all, God made them first!"

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 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.

Recommends it for: Everyone
This gorgeous sequel to Dear Children of the Earth continues the same theme and visual storytelling to act as a follow-up reminder of the lessons learned. Schimmel's books are as much a joy to simply look at as read.
Whole And
Gorgeous illustrations and message, of love and caring for the planet and all the inhabitants. The animals reach out to the readers, young and old alike, to remind us all of what's precious.

A wonderful and gentle reminder to be 'the heart and ears of mother earth.'
