When We All Stopped
Teach your kids in preschool through second grade that there are many activities that we practice that either contribute to saving the planet or further contribute to global warming and environmental issues. As millions around the world sheltered at home due to the coronavirus pandemic, our Planet Earth truly flourished. Smog melted away, the birds sang, and the waters ran clear. What if we used this moment in our lives and in history as an opportunity to improve our environment and jumpstart the rebirth of our planet as we go back to work and school? This moment can lead us to a healthier, cleaner, greener future, if only we grasp it. In partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute, climate change subject matter expert Tom Rivett-Carnac tells the educational, yet poetic, story of what happened when we all stopped.
- Boys and girls will love the story of how the pandemic positively affected our Earth and learn how we can continue protecting the planet
- The hardcover book and paper pages make it a timeless and classic storybook to enjoy reading over and over again
- Easy-to-read text with a vibrant and beautiful picture on each page
- Perfect if you're looking for climate change books, global warming books, or Earth Day gifts for kids

Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children's books. Our books are designed to spark curiosity in the littlest readers and fan the flames of lifelong learning. We understand children deserve our respect. That's why we always select artwork and stories that encourage caregivers to "read up" to their little ones--exploring interests together, learning together, and giving their young minds room to grow.
We also believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.
To bring these beautiful stories to life, our diverse and talented staff collaborates with authors and illustrators from all backgrounds and nationalities. We have also partnered with multicultural brands and literacy organizations to make sure our books reflect and reach as many little ones as possible.
