What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

When a young boy in search of joy asks the Earth where he can find happiness, the Earth responds and agrees to show him the way. The boy rushes excitedly through the landscapes that make the Earth most proud–the ocean, the cliffs, the forest, the desert, the mountains, and the top of the world. But the boy soon realizes happiness is much harder to find than he expected.

Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.

This is an all-time favorite children’s book for me. The artwork is stunning and the entire book is a fantastic celebration of our beautiful Earth. This is the first children’s book by award-winning photographer Chris Burkard, and if you’ve seen his photography (@chrisburkard), it’s no surprise that the message of this book is to take time to explore and enjoy beautiful moments. Children might not appreciate that important reminder as much as adults, but they’ll love the pretty illustrations and the peaceful, calm of this book. The words are simple and direct, but that’s part of what makes it powerful.
