About this deal

There are no magic wands, Ronnie. There are magic wands, but there are no magic wands. Do you understand me? We have also included an activity that your class must add in the names of the planets in the solar system.

O realybė tokia, kad iki šiol nežinau, ar knyga patiko. Likau sužavėtas teksto lėtumu, rašymo maniera, tais spalvotais potėpiais, bet tik tiek. Kiekvieną kartą, kai paimdavau knygą, atsiverdavo visai kiti vaizdai, buvau įsiurbiamas, o kai tik užversdavau - viskas pasimiršdavo, nuotaikos nelikdavo, vaizdinys išblukdavo. Tuštuma. I like this book because it keeps your attention. It gives you details that you strive to weave together. How do the parts fit together? The ending? Don’t expect conclusive answers. But tell me, isn’t life that way? That I desperately wanted clear answers is the best indicator of the extent to which the story pulled me in. I have come to the conclusion that the ending is perfect.Celebrated author/artist Oliver Jeffers, inspired by the birth of his son, presents a picture-book love letter to our planet in this beautiful new book. "Here we are," the narrator informs us, pointing to our blue globe, as it hangs in space. From the land to the sea, from people to animals, all the wonderful, marvelous kinds of creature and thing that go to make up our planet are detailed. So too are various pieces of advice about living in this world of ours, from cherishing the time we have (there isn't much of it) to being kind to the other residents. In the end, on Earth, you are never alone...

Y es que este libro ilustrado te invita a recordar que todos somos diferentes, pero al mismo tiempo, iguales. Te invita a recordar que eres parte de algo, de un planeta, aunque a veces en el traqueteo de la vida no te des cuenta. Por su sencillez, al ser una obra dedicada hacia los niños, Oliver Jeffers transmite todo ese amor de manera efímera, en una gama de colores brillantes y muy pocas palabras. Creo que para un niño puede resultar más sencillo de entender, porque normalmente, creo yo, son puros y no tienen la cabeza llena de pensamientos angustiantes y dolorosos como los adultos. No juzgan por religiones, aspectos o estatus. Creo que los adultos sí tendemos a hacerlo y por ello, Jeffers habla mayormente de lo que él quiere transmitir a su hijo: el mensaje del amor. Your class will look at simple synonyms of the words and place the new vocabulary into the sentences to complete them. Moments of human intimacy jostle with scenes that inspire cosmic awe, and the broad diversity of Jeffers’s candy-colored humans…underscores the twin messages that ‘You’re never alone on Earth’ and that we’re all in this together.”– Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)

The narrator spoke in a monotone for most of the story, almost as if he was sitting next to me and whispering the story in my ear. That is, when he wasn’t singing popular songs from the variety act in 1959 which the book is about.
