Editorial Reviews

Review

"It's far and away the best work she's done. . . . No detail escapes Blackall's attention, though; close reading is richly rewarded. . . . Though its scope is expansive, "If You Come to Earth" feels, in the end, intimate."-The New York Times

"The true delight of [If You Come to Earth] lies in its stunning illustrations. Each page features a dynamic, energetic composition, a wealth of precise detail arranged in unexpected ways. . . . Sweet, funny, moving, timely, and beautiful."-Horn Book Magazine, starred review 

"To take care of one another and the Earth, we must truly see one another as unique and valued. . . . Throughout [If You Come to Earth], diverse people are distinctively, carefully portrayed, emphasizing representation and visibility. . . . Two-time Caldecott Medalist Blackall's rich illustration invites return visits to investigate all the small, and big, details they contain. . . . An introduction to Earth for children big and small who live in this galaxy, or beyond."-Kirkus Reviews

"[Sophie Blackall's] signature Chinese ink and watercolor illustrations will draw children in for repeat readings to pore over each detail. . . . Each page is well researched and inclusive, as Blackall depicts the many different people who live in the world. . . . With its gorgeous and intricate illustrations, [If You Come to Earth] is perfect for sharing."-School Library Journal, starred review

"[E]xquisite . . . Magnificent . . . [D]azzling. . . . [If You Come to Earth] is a book that can be shared with strangers, visitors, friends old and new-a work in which differences build to reveal an inclusive human family on a single, precious planet."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Blackall writes in honest, uncomplicated prose, her unpretentious statements all the more resonant for their frankness. She covers nearly every aspect of existence. . . . Blackall's colorful, clever illustrations feel as though she has focused a giant microscope on the planet. You could spend hours poring over the details on every page. . . . [If You Come to Earth is] a sprawling, ambitious take on some of life's biggest questions."-BookPage 

"[V]ivid, delicate, and precise, Blackall composes intricate spreads that express the vast diversity of the planet. . . As a two-time Caldecott winner, [she] is deservedly celebrated, and here she pairs her accomplished artwork with a story children will want to read and a message that resonates. [If You Come to Earth] is one to take your time with, savor, and share with others."-Booklist, starred review
