If You Come to Earth was an attempt to make a book full of pictures for every child I’ve ever met, and all the ones I haven’t yet, anywhere in the world. A book to bring us together. It is a celebration of the extraordinary details that make life on Earth so wonderful and diverse — a rainbow after a storm, a mole that distinguishes identical twins, the braille alphabet. But also a reminder that this planet that holds all our food and all our water and all the art and books and music, and every ant and every sneeze and every comma, belongs to all of us — and there is more that unites us than separates us. Sometimes it takes a new set of eyes, in this case possibly the many eyes of a visitor from outer space, for us to see all that we are, and all that we can be.
