If You Come to Earth

If You Come to Earth

Melanie says: A picture book with universal appeal by two-time Caldecott Winner author-illustrator Sophie Blackall is one which should not be missed! The author talked with children all over the world to find the answer to the question of how you might explain our planet to an alien from outer space. We learn about families and diverse people, fauna, animals, our environment, and much more. You could spend hours just looking at the extraordinary illustrations! For all ages to enjoy.

From two-time Caldecott Winner author-illustrator Sophie Blackall!


If You Came to Earth is a glorious guide to our home planet, and a call for us to take care of both Earth and each other.


This stunning book is inspired by the thousands of children Sophie Blackall has met during her travels around the world in support of UNICEF and Save the Children.

This masterful and moving picture book is a visually comprehensive guide to the earth, imbued with warmth and humor.
