Summary
From two-time Caldecott Winner author-illustrator Sophie Blackall!

If You Come to Earth is a glorious guide to our home planet, and a call for us to take care of both Earth and each other.

This stunning book is inspired by the thousands of children Sophie Blackall has met during her travels around the world in support of UNICEF and Save the Children.

* An engaging storybook about a single curious and imaginative child
* Simultaneously funny and touching
* Carries a clear message about the need to care for the earth and each other

If you come to Earth, there are a few things you need to know. . .
We live in all kinds of places.
In all kinds of homes.
In all kinds of families.
Each of us is different. But all of us are amazing.
And, together, we share one beautiful planet.

This masterful and moving picture book is a visually comprehensive guide to the earth, imbued with warmth and humor.

* Ideal for children ages 3 to 5 years old
* Resonates year-round as a go-to gift for birthdays, holidays, and more
* A great pick for teachers looking for a crowd-pleasing picture book about the world for little students
* Perfect for parents, grandparents, and caregivers
* Add it to the shelf with books like The Travel Book by Lonely Planet Kids, Atlas of Adventures by Rachel Williams, and If You Lived Here: Houses of the World by Giles Laroche.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The cover establishes the concept with a young boy looking up from Earth, drawing on a long roll of paper that spirals into the sky. His message is being received by a spaceship, hovering close to the sun. As he adds narrative to his pictures, he sends an invitation: "Dear Visitor from Outer Space, / If you come to Earth, / here's what you need to know." Hand-lettering furthers the feeling that the boy is writing the words himself. With ink-and-watercolor art that is vivid, delicate, and precise, Blackall composes intricate spreads that express the vast diversity of the planet, ranging from wider scopes--the solar system, land, and sea--to closer up--homes, transportation, families, bodies, food, and animals. The boy describes people communicating with words, sign language, Braille, art, and music. The sense is that if you are on Earth, you belong, though the boy also acknowledges that bad things happen here. Some don't have enough to eat; lose homes to fire, flood, or war; get sick or have accidents. Nonetheless, he thinks visitors would find his world beautiful. As a two-time Caldecott winner, Blackall is deservedly celebrated, and here she pairs her accomplished artwork with a story children will want to read and a message that resonates. This is one to take your time with, savor, and share with others."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Meeting children from around the world gave Caldecott Medalist Blackall (Hello Lighthouse) a vision of a book "that would bring us together," she explains in an author's note. This exquisite catalogue of human experience is the result. A child with an elfin red cap, white skin, and black hair frames the story, addressing a "Visitor from Outer Space." Magnificent spreads journey through the solar system and descend toward the Earth's surface, zeroing in on a quilted landscape. Fragmentary, often droll descriptions of Earth-side existence follow, about bodies and aging, home and travel, eating and drinking ("Some of us have more food than others"), and relationships ("Sometimes we hurt each other. It's better when we help each other"). Wide-eyed human characters of varying shapes, ethnicities, and abilities show kind regard for each other: a librarian offers a tissue to a man overcome, dinner table companions share animated conversation. Even for the accomplished Blackall, the artwork is dazzling. Encyclopedic paintings of the natural world--birds, sea life, an acorn, and more--are rendered in painstaking detail and brilliant colors. It is a book that can be shared with strangers, visitors, friends old and new--a work in which differences build to reveal an inclusive human family on a single, precious planet. Ages 5--8. (Sept.)"
