Descripción: Product DescriptionThis lyrical, environmentally focused picture book showcases the unique beauty of our one and only universe--its galaxies, stars, and planets--as well as our one and only Earth and the precious life it contains.Join one girl as she leads her friends to a tree-planting ceremony. Along the way, she explains in simple language the value of the universe and Planet Earth. Readers will see the Big Bang, the Milky Way, all the planets in the solar system, as well as Earth's atmosphere, and the life within it: its oceans, trees, bugs, and seven billion human beings. Finally, the girl and her friends plant a tree--doing one small thing to help their one special planet.Both informative and inspiring, here is a beautifully written and gorgeously illustrated science picture book about our universe that will encourage young readers and listeners to protect and preserve the environment.From School Library JournalK-Gr 3-This informative picture book starts with a blonde gender-neutral child (likely a girl, as the book is dedicated to Greta Thunberg) telling a blonde sibling about one speck that exploded to create our universe. They travel outside where they are joined by a few other children, of more diverse backgrounds, as the child explains about the stars and planets in our galaxy and then about the atmosphere, terrain, and millions of species on Earth. The Earth is described as "our one and only planet to care for, love and preserve" and the closing pages show the child, along with other children and adults, planting a tree. Simple text clearly informs young readers about earth and space science as well as environmental conservation. The illustrations perfectly match the text and help define new terms such as how some galaxies have names that match their shape (Cartwheel, Sunflower, Sombrero, Tadpole). The artwork has soft strokes yet vibrantly brings to life our marvelous universe. Hopkinson has taken complex science and presented it in a way that even the youngest of readers will understand. VERDICT This book is important to add to all collections because of its comprehensive look at the universe and message about the importance of protecting the planet.-Heidi Dechiefα(c) Copyright 2011.
