K-Gr 2—This latest in Toon's line of comics for young readers explores the interconnectedness of all living beings. Crane lists the elements that make up our world, starting with the planet itself and moving from the air and clouds to plants and animals and finally to the tiniest cells and atoms. The colorful, eye-popping cartoons are the highlight of the work. The use of black as an accent color on each page shows the common thread between each component. The language is poetic but accessible, with two-to-four words per page. However, while the message is beautiful, some children may find it too abstract, and adults might need to provide context.
VERDICT A worthwhile purchase for libraries seeking additional beginning readers.
