|From The Publisher*||Raffi's beloved song celebrating the earth is available for the first time in a board book edition that readers will treasure as they grow.|
From children to animals, from leaves on a tree to fish in the sea, everything grows. Raffi's popular and catchy song encourages kids to take in the world around them and appreciate the way everything is growing together. Lush illustrations by Nina Mata show families interacting with a community garden and marveling at the interconnectedness of the earth in this timely and timeless song and story.
"The addition of Raffi's voice to the American political landscape is actually invaluable -- the singer-songwriter is the premier emissary for children and his positions carry with them an incredible weight."--New York Magazine
