" I liked the book for children. I love the message for adults. Good luck and much success for the whitefeatherfoundation.com " said.

" Cute picture book by Julian Lennon and Bart Davis, created as Lennon wrote a poem about taking care of the earth, etc. " said.

" Sweet book to use as as starting point to talk to children about how important the earth is to us and things that can be done to make it better. Be sure to visit Julian's White Feather Foundation website to do and learn more. Whitefeatherfoundation.com " said.

" I love the illustrations. I love the idea and fundamental theme. I disliked the execution. The whole push a button piece I cannot even begin to dissect here... it's that bad.P.s. I loved the into to the origin of the White Feather foundation at the end! " said.

" It is a cute book that delivers a good message about conservation and treating the Earth and all the creatures that share it with respect. My only fault with the book is it sort of teaches the directions But then reinforces them more as up and down instead of north and south. Confusing to little minds trying to grasp such concepts. " said.

" What can you do to save the world? Press a few buttons! Guess what, you also get to help people. And it just so happens that all of the people who need help are black. And that's the only context we see them in: oh-so-very happy that you've come to save them. A not-so-great execution of the interactive book, with cringe-worthy content. There's a reason why being a children's book author is a profession in and of itself. " said.

"The book's heart is in the right place, but something doesn't sit right with me about the message that you can solve the world's problems with a simple push of a button. I get that it's simplified to be made accessible to kids and get them excited, but it still rubs me the wrong way. The illustrations are beautiful but why do we need to reinforce the stereotype that places where black people live are places that need to be saved by white people (the White Feather Flier is the name of the plane.) The entire world is water insecure and all of our habitats are at risk, there's no need to reinforce a white savior trope that is oh so tired and also completely false. Disappointed there." said.

" This interactive book will take readers on board the White Feather Flier as they navigate the earth, by simply pressing a button. Bold print and cute illustrations make this a fun way for children 4 to 8 to learn about direction, geography and helping the environment. " said.
