Big, brainy science for the littlest listeners.
Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby, this clever board book explores the climate of our planet and the need to protect it for all babies. Beautiful, visually stimulating illustrations complement age-appropriate language to encourage baby’s sense of wonder. Parents and caregivers may learn a thing or two as well!

Baby has a blanket. It’s not too big or too little. It’s not too thick or too thin. It’s just right.
The earth has a blanket, too. Just like Baby! The earth’s blanket is air.
