This is a story about a friendship that one child has with the earth. They play together. They listen to each other. They nourish each other. But when the earth is sad, the child is sad--so he finds a way to make his friend, the earth, happy. “The vibrant use of pastel colors and simple, big details in close-up perfectly communicate the tender empathy children feel towards something loved.”--Children’s Book Review
