Under the Same Sky is a beautiful hardback picture book, from the author of the striking book Moon.
Teckentrup explores the idea of what we share, being here together on this planet, through a gentle rhyme ideal for reading aloud. “We live under the same sky… in lands near and far. We live under the same sky… wherever we are”.
Her ingenious use of paper cutting illuminates the text and the message perfectly. There are likeable illustrations with a focus on the natural world, which will be appreciated by fans of Chris Haughton and Jon Klassen.
As ever with the best picture books, I have bought this one for children and adults. The dedication says it all – ‘For a united world’.
