Perfect for Earth Day!

Climb aboard a giant spaceship . . . the Earth! In glorious art, G. Brian Karas illuminates our Earth and its cycles and does a brilliant job of making the concepts of rotation and revolution understandable.

All these amazing things happen because the Earth is constantly in motion, spinning and circling, gliding and tilting. As passengers of the Earth, our voyage never ends!

About the Author:

G. Brian Karas lives in Rhinebeck, New York.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–A simple poetic text describes the Earth's daily and yearly cycles: "At night we turn away from the sun and see a universe of stars and planets while we dream of what we can do tomorrow." The paintings are as simple as the narrative; some show night and day with very large children on small planets (one is sleeping in darkness, the other is fishing in sunlight). Others show the passage of seasons as children go to school, celebrate birthdays, and stand by little trees in their various stages of growth. A few of the pictures go sideways in a manner that demonstrates some concepts very well; for example, gravity is concretely illustrated by figures standing on ground that runs perpendicular to the bottom of the page. Karas's distinctive cartoon figures will be familiar to anyone who knows his work, and his colors are gorgeous, even down to the endpapers (the front endpaper is sky blue and the back one is midnight blue). While this book does not present the information in a step-by-step fashion like Franklyn Branley's Sunshine Makes the Seasons (HarperCollins, 2005), it is just as outstanding in its own way, which is both more sophisticated and more childlike.–Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL
