Fly in for Story Time featuring "Touch the Earth"

“Touch the Earth”

by Julian Lennon and Bart Davis. Illustrated by Smiljana Coh.

This interactive book immerses children in a fun and unique journey. 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. Fly to the top of a mountain, send clean water to thirsty people, and then dive deep into the ocean to pick up pollution and bring back the fish!

"Touch the Earth takes readers on a journey in a magical plane that allows them to send clean water to the thirsty, clean oceans of polution and make a the world a better place." New York Magazine.
