Annotation: Laura Lee Benson's lilting verse carries us from one panoramic scene to another as we explore the landscapes and creatures that live on Earth. The simple prose facts, a subtext to the verse, serve as an introduction to earth and life sciences. Carrozza's exquisite watercolors help create a book that instructs and inspires.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 1995)
Double-page spreads each contain one or two lines from a song called ""This Is Our Earth,"" a box of informational text, and a color illustration. The facts about the environment do not always pertain to the lyrics, and the result is a disjointed text about conservation, difficult to read and understand. Music included.
