Description


An empowering picture book from New York Times bestselling author Beth Ferry (Stick and Stone) and Caldecott Honoree Brendan Wenzel (They All Saw a Cat) told with lyrical text and luminous illustrations.

Journey with a solar bear who shines a light on the endangered species around the world and join the cause with your own mighty roar in this hopeful love letter to planet Earth and those who inhabit it.

The Earth is ours.

Yours and mine.

So dare to care.

To glow. To shine.

'Cause if you would,

and when you did,

then you will be a solar kid.

"Ferry and Wenzel strive here to build awareness...movingly illustrating the emptiness that would be felt on the planet without creatures like pangolins, rhinos, manatees, and sea turtles. The call to action—'we'll ask you for your mighty roar, to show us we are worth fighting for'—is aided considerably by the warm, stirring artwork, which invites children to reflect on the human causes of wildlife extinction and encourages them to work together for a better future."-—ALA Booklist (starred review)
