Getting an email to review a book by Julian Lennon is definitely the coolest thing that has ever happened to me. Plus, it’s designed with Earth Day in mind, one of my fave holidays (def not biased 😉 ) so now’s the perfect time to share this book with you all, especially since I can tie it into Music Monday!
It is a children’s book but who said those were just for children? 😛

Touch the Earth by Julian Lennon with Bart Davis
Illustrated by Smiljana Coh
Genre: Children’s Book
Jump aboard the White Feather Flier, a magical plane that can go wherever you want. Just press a button printed on the page, and point the plane up in the air to fly, or down to land it.
The Flier’s mission is to transport readers around the world, to engage them in helping to save the environment, and to teach one and all to love our planet.
Fly to the top of a mountain. Send clean water to thirsty people. Dive deep into the ocean (the Flier turns into a submarine!) to pick up pollution and bring back the fish.
Explore the planet, meet new people, and help make the world a better place.
An inspiring, lyrical story, rooted in Lennon’s life and work, with beautiful illustrations that bring the faraway world closer to young children.
The book includes words to a special poem written by Julian Lennon, specifically for Touch the Earth.
Touch The Earth is the first book in a planned trilogy. A portion of the proceeds from books sales will go to support the environmental and humanitarian efforts of the White Feather Foundation.
