Description

"The affable text congratulates readers at every stop... offering a streamlined vision of the rewards of doing one's part. Set against a backdrop of calming teal tones, Coh's cheering matte pictures portray Earth's dramatic healing in bursts of vivid color. A concluding singsong poem echoes the rallying cry of Lennon's tale, which should spark productive dialogue."--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Touch the Earth

"I've always admired Julian Lennon's singing, because for all he has seen of the world, his melodies contain such childlike wonder... his words too. Buy this book, and his words turn into actions."
--Bono

"It's rare to find a beautiful book that speaks directly to kids, in both a playful and thoughtful way, about something as important as caring for our planet and all of its inhabitants. Touch The Earth combines this magic with true hand-to-page interactivity deftly woven into the narrative (and illustrations), creating a story I believe both kids and adults will want to read over and over again."
--Laurie Berkner

"When a book takes you on an adventure, it's a good thing and allows you to think about something in a new way. When a book also reminds us how to treat what we have, it's even better because it's a win win. That's exactly what Julian has done with his book... he's given us a Win Win."
--Whoopie Goldberg

"The first in Julian Lennon's White Feather Flier Adventure trilogy, Touch the Earth takes readers on a journey in a magical plane that allows them to send clean water to the thirsty, clean oceans of pollution, and 'make the world a better place.'"
--New York Magazine

"Lennon's debut picture book, the first in a planned trilogy, asks readers to hop aboard a magical airplane, the White Feather Flier (a name inspired by his father and his own environmental and humanitarian foundation), and go on a 'helping adventure' to protect the planet's oceans and water supply. [The illustrations] ... have a sweet-natured directness that may light up younger eyes."
--Publishers Weekly

"[Touch the Earth] is a fun book AND it's an educational one as well.... The book helps teach kids a wonderful lesson for Earth Day and every day beyond."
-Peanut Butter and Whine

"The artwork is beautiful... It really is stunning."
-TODAY

"I was immediately impressed with the interactive nature of the book. Although not all books lend themselves to this style, books that include elements of interactivity help resonate with kids more so when there's a lesson to be learned. Some books ask questions of kids, and some books, like this one, encourage kids to touch the picture, lean into the story, and really feel like they're in the book."
--Motherhood Moment

"A very timely book.... A children's book, if done well, and this one is, lives on and on."
--Al Roker

"A passion project that comes from the heart, this stunningly illustrated book is inspired by the white feather he was given by his father when he was young."
--Mom and More

"Healing the world's ills is the mission of this gentle outreach to young children. The authors successfully engage readers in their cause without raising any alarm bells. Instead, they employ an age-appropriate, interactive format where kids are asked to touch a button icon to 'travel' to the earth's trouble spots, including places without accessible medical care, oceans now in danger due to climate change, cities lacking sufficient green space, and disappearing rain forests. There is no call for activism--just a solid introduction to the idea that caring for our planet is a shared responsibility. The imaginary means of travel is a white feather flyer, the origin of which is explained by Lennon in the back matter. Coh's soft hues and playful cartoon illustrations set a pleasing tone, and the spare text delivers an impactful message with just the right dose of seriousness for the intended audience. VERDICT: Suitable for Earth Day or for conversations about working together for the common good." --School Library Journal
