Meanwhile Back on Earth . . .: Finding Our Place Through Time and Space (Hardcover)
Strap on your helmets and prepare for take-off as Jeffers takes us on a lesson through time and space! As we travel to different parts of our solar system we learn what happened in that same amount of time years ago on planet Earth. This book is full of fun facts that will have kids wanting to learn about the real history of where we come from.— Jess, Wild Rumpus
A father takes his two children on a thrilling out-of-this-world adventure into space and invites them to look back at Earth and the conflicts that have taken place since the beginning of time. This becomes a brief history of the world and a guide to the universe, told with Oliver Jeffers's inimitable perspective, wit, and exquisite artwork.
Meanwhile Back on Earth gives a unique look at life on Earth with a cosmic perspective—and an enduring message that what binds us together matters more than what sets us apart. A timely story for families everywhere.
"The writing breaks down big concepts into relatively simple parts, while Jeffers’ imaginative artwork invites viewers to come along for the ride." –Booklist
