Synopses & Reviews
In dynamic words and dramatic pictures, Earthdance invites young readers to become not just a part of the earth, but Earth itself--standing tall in space, carrying mountains and rivers on its back, housing insects, animals, and people. Through the lyrical poetry of its text and the vibrancy of its stunning illustrations, Earthdance brings passion to its subject.

"Ryders lyrical text invites young listeners to transform themselves into Earth and experience all its wonders.... An obvious choice for Earth Day story hours, this may also serve as a catalyst for children creating their own poetry or as a springboard for creative dramatics."--Booklist
