Bless the Earth, our faithful friend,
her mountain range and river bend,
her forest green and canopy,
the hidden world of bended trees.

This sweet and welcoming anthology for children ages 3-7 knits together our common humanity and the natural world in an engaging way that is simple for young readers to understand.

Bless the Earth contains approximately sixty selections of original as well as classic poems, divided into five chapters

BLESS THE EARTH is a collection of poems that celebrate Earth with all its beauty and wonder. Each poem is thought-provoking in it's own way and the hidden meanings are simple enough to engage children. It addresses both nature appreciation and environmental issues and is a great way to expand on discussions. The illustrations are adorable yet stunning with their intricate attention to detail. I think my favorite one is toward the back and is titled "Question" because it hits home with the singing of birds. What will replace them?

In the editor's note in the beginning, we learn that these poems were brought together so both parents and children can learn to cherish the world around them. So often our faces are stuck in a phone or tablet and sometimes we miss out on the magnificence around us. This collection reminds you of what's out there waiting for you to discover.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children who enjoy nature and poetry. To me, this is the perfect spring and Easter gift because that's when the flowers are starting to bloom.
