Written by Sandra Robbins and featuring the illustrations of Joan Alpers, The Earth & Me is based on a puppet and dance musical performed by New York's Shadow Box Theatre, and stresses the importance of life's delicate balance. Accompanied by a 48-minute music CD, the rhyming verse traces the cosmic origins of the Earth and life upon it, and embodies themes of hope and renewal. "And this is the story / That the Earth told the Child // In the beginning / There was stillness // In the beginning / There was motion // My blazing ball of fire quieted // The stars in the night / Called me their sister // The shafts of sunlight split / Framing colored mirrors // The Rainbow encircled me with its embrace."
