You are Stardust

You are Stardust

If people were planets, we’d be a lot like Earth …

People are nature. From the water we drink to the trees we climb, we are connected to the natural world in big and surprising ways. With simple, poetic text, and exquisite artwork, You Are Stardust introduces kids to these connections – sparking their imaginations and starting conversations.

Combining the ideas of environmental author and educator Elin Kelsey with inventive, three-dimensional dioramas by artist Soyeon Kim, this remarkable picture book reveals ties that are often sensed, yet seldom explained. Children will learn that the salt in their body is the same as the salt in the ocean, that they learned to speak in the same way that baby birds do – by copying their parents, and that elephants, bats and whales make friends, just like they do. In a world dominated by technology, never have these connections between people and nature been more worth exploring.

This book teaches how we are inherently linked to our environment
Smallish Magazine
We are left with a sense of wonder at the miracle of it all - and the need to look after both our fragile planet and the precious ecosystem that is 'planet You'

This glorious synthesis of art and science invites discussion about our place in the world, where we come from, how we change, and what makes us feel alive ... You are Stardust spectacularly shows how science is full of some of the best stories. A terrific book for nurturing curiosity and fostering a feeling of enchantment.
