TOUCH THE EARTH by Julian Lennon with Bart Davis Illustrated by Smiljana Coh

unnamed (3)

From internationally known singer, songwriter, and environmental activist Julian Lennon—along with New York Times bestselling author Bart Davis and beloved Croatian illustrator Smiljana Coh—comes TOUCH THE EARTH, an inspiring and lyrical story about how children can change the world and make it a better place.

In this debut picture book, readers will jump aboard the White Feather Flier, a magical plane that can go wherever you want, just point it up in the air, or down into the water. The White Feather Flier’s mission is to take children to places all over the world, engage them in helping to save the environment, and teach them how to keep it clean for future generations.

A passion project that comes from the heart, this stunningly illustrated book is inspired by the white feather he was given by his father when he was young. TOUCH THE EARTH is the first in a planned trilogy of similarly-themed picture books, and each will be released one year apart on Earth Day. A thrilling interactive experience à la Press Here, readers will participate in the action by pushing buttons within the book to help “fly the plane.”

Lennon has written an original poem to accompany the release of this legacy book, and all proceeds will be donated to the White Feather Foundation.

I received a copy of this delightful book and highly recommend! It’s the perfect book for young children in this day and time! It is inspiring and a magical story about making the world a better place.

I simply love the AllGlamR Rose Petal Cleanser! I love how it cleans my skin, leaves it feeling soft and I even like the way it smells! 

AllGlamR’s Rose Petal Cleanser is a new lightweight facial wash formulated with delicately fragrant Rosehip Seed Oil and Seaweed Extracts to gently remove and lift dirt, impurities, and dead skin while regenerating new cell growth, restoring skin’s natural PH levels and delivering much needed moisture. Harvested from the seeds of rose bushes, the oil is full of vitamins A, C, E and F, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while reducing scars and fine lines. It also influences collagen growth helping to reduce wrinkles and restore a firmer, smoother, younger looking appearance to every skin type and age.

My skin was really feeling dried out from the Winter season and this is the perfect face cleanser for the Spring! I love that only a small amount is needed and my skin feels smoother!

“Rosehip Seed Oil is the next coconut oil”, says Gina Caruso co-founder of the AllGlamR brand. “It’s full of antioxidants that work on a cellular level to rejuvenate the skin and promote a healthy glow. Rosehips were used by the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans for their healing properties and now provide a natural alternative to many ingredients that dry and irritate skin and unlike heavier oils, Rosehip Seed Oil is easily absorbed into the skin.”

 

This proprietary formula also contains Linoleic Acids, which are integral skin nutrients and Seaweed extract imparting additional skin nourishing, collagen-boosting vitamins and essential fatty acids that don’t just infuse the skin with moisture, but prevent skin from losing moisture. With all these natural skin reviving benefits Rose Petal Cleanser is the perfect everyday cleanser to clean and repair the skin’s surface, restore elasticity and protect against sun and pollution stressors that can lead to wrinkles.
