When Tessa writes a love letter to the Earth, it’s the beginning of a glorious adventure. She blows bubbles with whales, soars with birds and joins in with the noisy rainforest hullabaloo!

Tessa wants everyone to know how special our planet is. She believes that there is a chance to save the Earth if enough of us share the message…

Review by Stacey

Dear Earth is a beautiful children’s book that is about why we should love the planet and how it is being destroyed and what we can do to save it, told through the eyes of a little girl who cares a lot.

Young Tessa loves listening to her Grandpa tell her stories about the Earth. He used to be an explorer and has travelled far and wide. As he spoke Tessa would get amazing images in her head and so she decided to write a letter to the Earth telling her what she loves about it but also about how fragile the Earth is and the help she needs from the people upon her to thrive.

The book is truly amazing. It is like a love letter to the Earth sharing all the things Tessa loves to do on the Earth and the things she would love to do in the future.

The full-page illustrations are simply divine, they shine off each page and show the world in all her glory.

The book focuses on both the good and also on things that are happening in the world that are not so good such as plastic in the oceans, sea levels rising, Ice melting. At the back is factual information on how everyone can help the planet with some small steps.

I absolutely adored this book. It is glorious to look at and ever so poignant and heart-felt to read.
