On Earth
by G. Brian Karas


On Earth is an illumination of the earth's orbit, rotation, and tilt through "poetic text and gorgeous illustrations." (School Library Journal)

While not as straightforward as some other titles, most students will get the message about how these factors relate to our days, years, and seasons, and the striking and colorful illustrations will keep them engaged from cover to cover.

This book was an American Library Association Notable Children's Book in 2006.
