This is Your WorldFeatured
A baby deer and her father roam the sweeping landscape, marveling at its wonder. Treading lightly and with care, the fawn learns that the world is hers to enjoy and to explore through all the changes of seasons. It is a world to be cherished and shared, now and forever.
What I loved: The writing is beautiful, with a rhyming poem. The rhythm of the text makes it great for reading aloud, and the content is made for a parent reading to a child. The text is accompanied by sweepingly lovely and detailed illustrations showing the majesty of the world around and adorable deer. The overall message is conveyed well and in a hopeful manner, empowering even the smallest to feel like they can make a difference in the world around them.
The text is clear and printed large enough to easily read, and this would be a great choice for story time. With the great rhythm of the text, this would work well for a bedtime pick as well. The amount of text per page will work for toddlers through elementary school readers.
Final verdict: A lovely picture book with great rhythm, THIS IS YOUR WORLD is a beautiful and hopeful book about the wonder of the world and the need to take care of it. The story is ultimately empowering, showing the ability of small things to have big impact when we work together.
