We Are Earthlings

Little Simon. Mar. 2023. 34p. Board $8.99. ISBN 9781665922401.
PreS-Gr 2–Small children from many different racial backgrounds appear in this celebration of beings on earth, and appear with other earthlings, e.g., seahorses, pandas, elderly grandmothers with small babies on their laps, giraffes, elephants, puppies, brown bears with cubs. Commonalities are invoked: we have families, we are young and old, and more.
VERDICT As a first glimpse of what unites us, this is generous book for every collection, and a gentle reminder of what we share.
