This Is the Planet Where I Live

We rated this book:


The radiant colors that define the glowing figures and features in this unique story grab the reader and listener and through the rhythmic text introduce the novice to our global world. Not only are the creatures that make up this planet explained but also the environmental backgrounds are highlighted. A medley of various homes are bewitchingly displayed in neon colors that the reader can touch and identify, from tents to pagodas to apartment houses.

Colorful foods with flowers and vegetables accompany the homes, while the roles of insects, grazing animals, flocks of birds and trees are shown as neighbors in this planet. Non-living things like clouds provide the water for all the aforementioned creatures, yet the clouds rely on the oceans and the story continues to remind the reader how we all rely on one another—the environment and the living creatures are codependent.

Crowned by a golden sunflower with its petals radiating out as the sun’s rays, this simple yet elegant story will captivate young learners through the magic of its simple lilting text and its dynamic rhapsodic design and color.
