From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5 Poet Livingston and painter Fisher have teamed up again to create an inspiring look at a part of naturethis time, the planet Earth. As in their two previous books, Sea Songs (1986) and Sky Songs (1984, both Holiday), their combined effort captures the beauty and dynamism of our planet. The poetry is first-person: the Earth tells of her mountains, her forests, her deserts, and her waters, and each page reminds readers of the power and grandeur of our often taken-for-granted surroundings. Fisher's double-page paintings are a perfect match to the poetryindeed, one cannot imagine a better combination since the bold, haunting oil paintings on a textured surface evoke the same feeling the poet so aptly creates. Because of the subject matter, vocabulary, and rather sophisticated lyricism, the book may find only limited appeal to mass audiences, but that should not be sufficient reason to overlook it for purchase.

From Publishers Weekly:

Like the previous Sky Songs and Sea Songs from the same collaborators, this picture book celebrates the beauty of the physical world. The poet asks the "Little O, small earth" to "say its secrets," and the earth answers with an invitation to explore its surfaces: "Patched together/With land and sea,/ I am earth,/ Great earth./ Come with me!" Reader and poet see mountains "chained in deep folds,/molded in waves that sleep, wrinkled and old." They visit the "dashing, plashing" rivers and the canyons that "deep sleep in stone walls, black, silent and steep." Fisher's majestic paintings bring drams to such descriptions as the "red mouth" of a volcano and the round O of earth surrounded by a golden halo of light in a star-flecked sky. This book will challenge the minds and enrich the vision of its young readers.
