Touch the Earth

From internationally known singer, songwriter, and environmental activist Julian Lennon—along with New York Times bestselling author Bart Davis and beloved Croatian illustrator Smiljana Coh—comes TOUCH THE EARTH, an inspiring and lyrical story about how children can change the word and make it a better place.

In this debut picture book, readers will jump aboard the White Feather Flier, a magical plane that can go wherever you want, just point it up in the air, or down into the water. The White Feather Flier’s mission is to take children to places all over the world, engage them in helping to save the environment, and teach them how to keep it clean for future generations.

A passion project that comes from the heart, this stunningly illustrated book is inspired by the white feather he was given by his father when he was young. TOUCH THE EARTH is the first in a planned trilogy of similarly-themed picture books, and each will be released one year apart on Earth Day. A thrilling interactive experience à la Press Here, readers will participate in the action by pushing buttons within the book to help “fly the plane.”

Lennon has written an original poem to accompany the release of this legacy book, and all proceeds will be donated to the White Feather Foundation.

About the Authors and Illustrator

Julian Lennon (author) is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter, photographer, documentarian, and philanthropist. Born in Liverpool, England, Lennon is an observer of life in all its forms developing his personal expression through his artistic endeavors. In 2007, Lennon founded the global environmental and humanitarian organization The White Feather Foundation whose key initiatives are education, health, conservation, and the protection of indigenous culture.

Bart Davis (author) is an international bestselling author of novels and nonfiction books. His most recent isBlack and White—The Way I See It, the biography of Richard Williams, father of tennis champions Venus and Serena Williams. He has also written two feature films and a wide range of print articles. Davis lives in New York City.

Smiljana Coh (illustrator) is an artist who studied film animation and combines traditional and digital illustration techniques in her work. She has illustrated the picture books I Want to Be a Ballerina and wrote and illustrated The Seven Princesses. She lives in Croatia and can be found online at cohillustration.com.

This is an adorable picture book that is also interactive. Throughout the book there are prompts such as “Just press the FLY button” and “Shake the book” perfect to get even the kids that hate reading into a book. My kids (5, 8 and 10 years old) all got into the book and I am adding this book to my list to give as birthday gifts. I think it would be perfect for any age, from parents reading to kids to kids reading on their own. A portion too of the proceeds from the book sales will go to support the environmental and humanitarian efforts of The White Feather Foundation.
