's review

it was amazing

Wow! This book made me learn and laugh and long to turn the page to find out what else Earth has to say in her autobiography. Planets, the sun, the moon and asteroids are all anthropomorphized to create an interesting and informative narrative. In Earth's own words:

"My family is really really big. I have seven siblings in my solar system. I'm closest to Venus and Mars. Some used to say I have eight siblings, but Pluto is more like the family pet."

Witty text is enhanced by engaging illustrations. The book includes backmatter for kids or adults who are interested in learning more about Earth's life. It's prefaced with a letter to Alien Visitors:

"Perhaps you are considering making Earth you second home, so you can visit during your summer vacations. Here are some additional fun facts about our great planet. Enjoy!"

I highly recommend this book for everyone who lives on Earth!
