What I like about the book:
The author does a great job conveying the importance of taking care of not just the earth but every living creature on it. The text is rhythmic and the illustrations draw you in with their warmth and joy. Visit every continent as you turn the page. Meet playful creatures from around the world in their natural habitat.
