The gentle, intricate art style of this book will be familiar to readers of Finding Winnie. The text is a meditation from the point of view of a child who wants to create, for lack of a better word, not a time capsule but a space capsule -- rather similar in intent to the materials we sent with the Voyager probe. The book contains some easter egg-style references to famous children's books; look out for Ezra Jack Keats' Snowy Day and (I think) Virginia Lee Burton's The Little House...and probably more I haven't caught.

The are a lot of things I don't know. I don't know of there is life elsewhere in the universe, though I find it hard to believe we are all alone. But I do know this: Right this minute, we are all here together on this beautiful planet. It's the only one we have, so we should take care of it. And each other. Don't you think?

An important message for all from Aussie-born Sophie Blackall, who has forged together what she has learned from children in her travels worldwide. Wonderfully illustrated. ( )

A child named Quinn writes a letter to "Visitor from Outer Space," letting them know what Earth is like and what they can expect to see. A gently free-wheeling, kid-friendly voice describes: people and where they live and what they do; animals who swim, fly, walk; what kids do and what grownups do; sad things like fights, wars and not enough to eat; the kinds of weather, nature and man-made things there are; and closes with an invitation to stay over "if you come to earth." Pitch-perfect with child appeal and nicely diverse illustrations of people. An ideal book to generate a similar class-writing activity. ( )

This charming book takes the form of a letter written by a small child named Quinn:

“Dear Visitor from Outer Space,
If you come to Earth,
Here’s what you need to know.”

The letter begins with a description of our solar system and its planets - “Ours is the greeny-blue one.”

It then gets into the specifics of life on earth: where people live, how they live, what they do all day, what they look like, and what the life cycles are. Quinn describes various kinds of clothes and different kinds of weather, animals, fish, plants, and objects both natural and manufactured. Quinn also talks about things that are invisible, like wind, smells, sounds, emotions, and germs.

The letter concludes:

“There are lots of things we don’t know. We don’t know where we were before we were born or where we go when we die.

But right this minute, we are here together on this beautiful planet.”

In a charming ending, Quinn adds, “If you come to Earth, you can stay in my room. Love, Quinn.”

Blackall explains in a note at the conclusion of the book that while traveling around the world in support of UNICEF and Save the Children, she always asked children for ideas about how they would explain our world to someone from outer space. One young boy in Australia named Quinn particularly impressed Blackall and she gave the child in the story his name. She reports, for example, that she asked Quinn “What kind of snack would you give a visitor from another planet?” “‘Mashed potatoes,’ he said without hesitation. ‘Because we don’t know if they have teeth.’”

Blackall, a two-time Caldecott Medal winner, uses Chinese ink and watercolor for her delightful illustrations full of details for discerning readers to discover. Many of the pictures help make the point - as Quinn observes in one spread - that “It’s better when we help each other.” Blackall reiterates this message in her note: “Right this minute, we are all here together on this beautiful planet. It’s the only one we have, so we should take care of it. And each other. Don’t you think?”

Evaluation: Both children and parents will love pouring over the pictures and ideas in this book for readers 5 and up, and thinking about what they might add to educate any visiting aliens. ( )
