You Are Never Alone
by Elin Kelsey

$19.94 (hc), 32 pp, ages 4 – 12
From the creators of You Are Stardust, Wild Ideas, and A Last Goodbye, You Are Never Alone explores how humans are connected to nature. It draws examples from the clouds and the cosmos, to the seafloor and the surface of our skin, to show how the natural world unites us, no matter how far away we may feel from one another. Whether it’s gravity holding us or the whales whose waste fertilizes the plankton that feed the fish we eat, we are supported and sustained by nature. Using current science and illustrated with stunning diorama art, this book invites readers to observe the natural world and engage with big ideas during a challenging time of social distancing.
