" 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.

"I recently had the chance to review Touch the Earth (Amazon, B&N, and Indiebound) by Julian Lennon. This photographer, musician, Grammy Award Nominee, and environmentalist is branching out as an author to share his message with kids around the world.


I was immediately impressed with the interactive nature of the book. Although not all books lend themselves to this style, books that include elements of interactivity help resonate with kids more so when there's a lesson to be learned. Some books ask questions of kids, and some books, like this one, encourage kids to touch the picture, lean into the story, and really feel like they're in the book.


As kids fly around the world on the White Feather Flier, they learn about helping the environment and keeping their world clean. The message is simple - we need to take care of the natural resources we have - and the style will help kids see that their actions really can impact the world in which they live.

"As a twenty-six-year-old man with no children, I'm always a bit hesitant to review children's books. That being said, books occasionally end up on my desk that are either too creative or important to pass up. That is exactly the case with Touch the Earth. Written by Julian Lennon with the assistance of Bart Davis and illustrator Smiljana Coh, Touch the Earth combines interactive storytelling with an educational and vitally important message that kids, parents, and everyone in between will appreciate.

With a physical shake and a bit of imagination, the book is transformed into the White Feather Flyer. This magical vehicle is equipped with a compass, buttons, and other gadgets that aide in our adventure across the globe. In each place that we land, we learn of the natural resources that are vital to the lives of the people who live there. From the depths of a polluted ocean to the searing heat of a desert in need of irrigation, the book provides a fun and interactive look at the world we live in.

Julian Lennon, son of the famed Beatle John, along with Bart Davis take readers on a journey that is as educational as it is entertaining. Smiljana Coh's vibrant illustrations showcase the beauty that can be found throughout the Earth. The interactive elements that allow readers to steer the aircraft, irrigate land, clean litter, and control the environment is a unique feature that will surely add to the re-readability of this story. The end of the book features a poem by Lennon as well as information about his charity The White Feather Foundation. Portions from the proceeds of this book go towards that foundation. Touch the Earth is the planned start of a trilogy of books that entertain, teach a valuable lesson, and promote a worthy cause.

" Thanks to Goodreads First Reads for the chance to read this great children's book! It's a wonderful book for young kids, very creative and interactive. It encourages imagination and learning while touching on the importance of proper respect and care for the planet. Definitely a great addition to the bookshelf! " said.

"Five stars! Touch the Earth takes the reader in an imaginative adventure where she becomes an airplane pilot on a mission to help people and care for the earth. The book starts with a map of the world and asks the reader to locate where she or he lives, which is a great learning opportunity to talk about with a child.
The book then turns into the controls for a plane, with buttons and instructions to tilt the book up and down and to the side to land and turn the plane. I read this book with a three year old who loved playing pretend and going on an adventure where she was empowered to make a difference. The illustrations were beautiful! The illustrations were detailed and led to great discussions about how to help other people how to care for the earth.

"Nonna's Corner
Today on Nonna's Corner I am sharing the picture book TOUCH THE EARTH  by Julian Lennon with Bart Davis. This children's picture book offers an interactive imagination experience for young readers. Grab a cup of coffee and let your imagination soar as we take flight. You'll want to add this to your wee one's bookshelf.



Come jump aboard the White Feather Flier, a magical plane in TOUCH THE EARTH written by Julian Lennon along with Bart Davis. I had a feeling this tale would be special and I was right. Beautifully illustrated by Smijana Coh children will love meeting the flyer.  Julian Lennon takes young explorers on a magical flight designed to get their young mind's thinking about and protecting the environment. One of the things I love is the nontechnology interactive aspect to this story. The story encourages readers to use their imagination as they push the button and tilt the book up or down to fly over mountains and swoop down low. TOUCH THE EARTH is lyrical yet simplistic as we help gather water, dive into the deep and meet new people. The book also includes a beautiful poem written by Julian specifically for this book. It gently reminds all of us how important our planet is especially for the wee one's we are reading to. This is the first book in a planned trilogy and a portion of the proceeds from books sales will go to support the environmental and humanitarian efforts of the White Feather Foundation. This would be perfect for the classroom and a great gift to celebrate Earth Day. Let your imagination soar!

"Journey across the world with the White Feather Flier, a magical aeroplane. Go and see for yourself the devastation that has been caused throughout the world. From places with no clean water, to sea’s full of plastic bottles and rubbish. But with your help we can reverse the damage.

Throughout your adventure you are in control of the plane, it’s up to you to steer it wherever you want it to go. Then make a safe landing and go and explore the country you have landed in. The plane is so special it can even fly under water.

After a hard day, head back home. But not for long, as this is the first book in a planned trilogy.

At times when there are so many issues going on in the world, Julian Lennon and Bart Davis have written a book together that explains what is happening throughout the world. The story will help children have a better understanding of the world they live in. It will also make them see that will a little help and care from everyone, these problems can be erased.

Julian Lennon believes that if you can teach children to love and understand the planet, they will naturally care for it. This book is all about getting his message across in a fun, interactive, child friendly manner.

The plot is wonderfully eye opening, and the raw illustrations bring the story to life. This book will definitely be a big hit with the kids. I’m sure that Julian’s message will get into the hearts of lots of youngsters, and adults, who read it too.

At the back of the book there is also a special poem by Julian, titled ‘Touch the Earth’.
