In this magically illustrated and delightfully rhyming bedtime story, little Sofia befriends the Moon and sets off on a dreamy adventure to visit her friend. She sees our planet from the Moon’s point of view and is inspired to do whatever she can to protect our Earth. When she wakes, Sofia encourages others to do the same. “Once you see from this distant view, Awareness may come over you. By far your gift of greatest worth Is our dear home, this planet Earth.” Sofia’s Dream was inspired by the author’s interviews with three Apollo astronauts, about how viewing Earth from space affected their sense of responsibility for the health of our planet. Sofia’s Dream has won three awards: The Gelett Burgess Children’s Book Award, Environment; The Moonbeam Gold Award for Environmental Issues; and The Mom’s Choice Gold Award. A guide for readers is included in the back matter, along with three activities young people can do to better care for our world’s air, land, and water.
