Staff Reviews


This was a "found on the shelves" title for me that demanded my immediate attention. The words so beautifully illustrate our dependence on the Earth and the interconnectedness of creatures great and small. Soyeon Kim's illustrations, with gorgeous colors and amazing cutouts, really add dimension and make this a book worth treasuring.

— From You are Never Alone

Description


From the creators of You Are Stardust and Wild Ideas comes a new picture book that explores how humans are inextricably connected to nature.

This book draws examples from the clouds and the cosmos, the seafloor and the surface of our skin, to show how we are never alone: we are always surrounded and supported by nature. Whether it's gravity holding us tight; our lungs breathing oxygen synthesized by plants; the countless microorganisms that build our immunity; or the whales whose waste fertilizes the plankton that feed the fish we eat: nature touches every aspect of how we live.

Using lyrical text grounded in current science alongside detailed diorama art, this informational picture book presents the idea that we thrive through connections to the land and sea and sky, and togetherness is key to nature. It encourages inquiry-based learning, inviting readers to wonder, ask questions, observe the natural world, and engage with big ideas. An author's note at the end offers more insight into the research behind the text.
