Sometimes it’s easy to forget that humans are not the only inhabitants of Earth. This visually striking book reminds us that not only do we share an ecosystem with other living things, but that we can also learn much from the behavior and instincts of our animal neighbors. In Pablo Salvaje’s handcrafted, softly colored prints readers encounter a wide range of creatures— from jellyfish and peacocks to polar bears and snakes. With chapters on love, survival, change, habitat, water, and other topics, this book takes readers on a journey across the planet to show how animals, like humans, form bonds, engage in rivalries, adapt their behavior to cope with challenges, and do anything to protect their offspring. A beautiful lesson in compassion, this book carries a universal message that readers young and old will appreciate and return to again and again.

A Children's Book Inspired By Pablo Picasso "A little white dot in the great sky," a dove sails over the earth looking for a place to land. She soars over a series of intriguing landscapes: rocky plains filled with strange objects; an abandoned circus; a deserted barn. Finally she meets a friend—a wounded blue dove. The two birds travel until the blue dove collapses in a garden where Picasso is painting with a group of children. Together the children and the artist help the wounded dove. Then the two doves fly away to spread peace in other parts of the world. Illustrated with bold, arresting gouache and watercolor paintings, this simple story packs in powerful meaning. Samples of Picasso’s other artworks and styles are cleverly included in the book, allowing readers the chance to learn about one of the world’s greatest artists—and one of his most enduring symbols.
