“I’ve always admired Julian Lennon's singing, because for all he has seen of the world, his melodies contain such childlike wonder... his words too. Buy this book, and his words turn into actions.”
“It's rare to find a beautiful book that speaks directly to kids, in both a playful and thoughtful way, about something as important as caring for our planet and all of its inhabitants. Touch The Earth combines this magic with true hand-to-page interactivity deftly woven into the narrative (and illustrations), creating a story I believe both kids and adults will want to read over and over again.”
“When a book takes you on an adventure, it's a good thing and allows you to think about something in a new way. When a book also reminds us how to treat what we have, it's even better because it's a win win. That's exactly what Julian has done with his book... he's given us a Win Win.”
“The first in Julian Lennon's White Feather Flier Adventure trilogy, 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 pollution, and ‘make the world a better place.’”
–New York Magazine
“Lennon's debut picture book, the first in a planned trilogy, asks readers to hop aboard a magical airplane, the White Feather Flier (a name inspired by his father and his own environmental and humanitarian foundation), and go on a “helping adventure” to protect the planet's oceans and water supply. [The illustrations] ... have a sweet-natured directness that may light up younger eyes.”
“[Touch the Earth] is a fun book AND it’s an educational one as well.... The book helps teach kids a wonderful lesson for Earth Day and every day beyond.”
–Peanut Butter and Whine
“The artwork is beautiful... It really is stunning.”
“I was immediately impressed with the interactive nature of the book. Although not all books lend themselves to this style, books that include elements of interactivity help resonate with kids more so when there's a lesson to be learned. Some books ask questions of kids, and some books, like this one, encourage kids to touch the picture, lean into the story, and really feel like they're in the book.”
“A very timely book.... A children's book, if done well, and this one is, lives on and on.”
“A passion project that comes from the heart, this stunningly illustrated book is inspired by the white feather he was given by his father when he was young.”
–Mom and More
Praise for Skyhorse Publihsing
“My first series became a New York Times bestselling children’s series, and that would have never happened without Skyhorse. . . . It’s a great feeling, having them at my side.”
–Mark Cheverton, New York Times bestselling childrens author
“I now believe the best word to describe me as an author is spoiled. That’s because the folks at Sky Pony have truly made me feel special about being in their stable. My editor is top-notch, and has a unique way of making me feel like her most important author.”
–Nancy Krulik, New York Times bestselling childrens author

It's a fun story, in which the reader travels around the world in a charming airplane called the White Feather Flier, to help solve problems. This White Feather Flier can also become a submarine and go under water. The book engages the child by encouraging the child to touch things in the book. It teaches the child about maps, and you learn about north, south, east and west, by pointing the Flier in different directions. The journey takes the reader around the world to help solve environmental problems, like helping fish by cleaning up plastic in the ocean, and solving water problems in dry regions, etc.
These things are all explained in a very SIMPLE way, that a small child can understand.
The illustrations are very cute. The story is fun. However, what's more important is that this is a book that can make children feel EMPOWERED. The world that the children of today are inheriting from us, has a lot of environmental problems that they will have to deal with. Personally, I believe that we actually can do something about it. And this book makes them understand that they can do something about it, and have fun while doing it.
I have been an environmentalist for many years, and I babysit my friend's children often. When I read this book to them, they feel empowered.
I love this book for it's spirit.
