Product Details


“Really quite glorious in his simplicity, Karas in word and picture effortlessly imparts understanding of time, calendars, seasons and growth in the rotation and revolution of planet earth. . . . The illustrations have texture and charm, but also whimsy and a light, supple touch, as they move in close to the children’s faces or out to the whole solar system. Terrific.” —Kirkus
“A simple poetic text describes the Earth’s daily and yearly cycles. . . . Karas’s distinctive cartoon figures will be familiar to anyone who knows his work, and his colors are gorgeous, even down to the endpapers. . . . Outstanding.” —School Library Journal

“With the same large format and broad perspective used in his picture book Atlantic (2002), Karas now discusses the orbit, rotation, and tilt of planet Earth. . . . Many of the individual illustrations are quite striking and even beautiful, and Karas’ child-friendly artwork loses none of its charm when seen in this large scale. Indeed, it seems even more original and appealing. . . . A good place to start small children thinking big.” —Booklist

“Written in succinct, poetic language, [On Earth] will capture children’s imagination.” —Children’s Literature
