Our world can be a bewildering place, especially if you’ve only just got here. Your head will be filled with questions, so let’s explore what makes our planet and how we live on it. From land and sky, to people and time, these notes can be your guide and start you on your journey. And you’ll figure lots of things out for yourself. Just remember to leave notes for everyone else… Some things about our planet are pretty complicated, but things can be simple, too: you’ve just got to be kind.

Originally published in 2017, this ground-breaking book has captured the hearts of readers around the world, selling more than three quarters of a million copies. This glorious and very special edition includes a spectacular giant poster. Unfold the jacket to reveal a map of the solar system – the perfect gift to welcome a new baby to Planet Earth.
