My Friend Earth

Our friend Earth does so many wonderful things! She tends to animals large and small. She pours down summer rain and autumn leaves. She sprinkles whisper-white snow and protects the tiny seeds waiting for spring. And just as she nurtures the habitats of all the animals — and the lands on which we live — we need to tend to and care for her, too!

Celebrate Earth Day with this valentine to our wonderful planet from Patricia MacLachlan, the Newbery Award-winning author of Sarah, Plain and Tall! MacLachlan's text is lyrical and thoughtful, while illustrator Francesca Sanna provides vibrant imagery, complete with flaps and die-cut pages that encourage exploration. This poetic book recognizes everything Earth does for us, all the while reminding us to be a good friend in return.

"After waking from a wintertime snooze, 'My friend Earth' carries out various duties: nurturing habitats ('She tends the prairie where sun-dappled wild horses run/ through grasses that swish against their legs,' MacLachlan writes in lyrical lines) and assisting animals ('She guides the chimpanzee to her night rest').... A poetic entrée into Earth’s modes rendered with an appreciation for natural details." — Publishers Weekly
