I recently had the chance to review Touch the Earth (Amazon, B&N, and Indiebound) by Julian Lennon. This photographer, musician, Grammy Award Nominee, and environmentalist is branching out as an author to share his message with kids around the world.
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.
As kids fly around the world on the White Feather Flier, they learn about helping the environment and keeping their world clean. The message is simple - we need to take care of the natural resources we have - and the style will help kids see that their actions really can impact the world in which they live.
