Earth feels unwell so she goes to the doctor. What the doctor prescribes seems impossible to Earth until she wakes the next day to surprising change. The gentle, timeless story can be enjoyed by everyone. It has the bonus of being a clever tool to help children process aspects of lockdown without any explicit reference to the pandemic as well as subtly prompting discussion around environmental issues.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is a deceptively powerful message disguised as a simple children's book. Beautifully illustrated, there is a touching depth here we should all take on as we and the Earth emerge from the Coronavirus crisis and look to a better future.' - Chris Knight; 'This book couldn't come at a better time. With the world being bought to its knees by the Covid-19 pandemic, it's hard to know how to talk about what is going with young children. They understand that things are not quite right, but don't always have the maturity to be able to hear what is really happening. ....My children, 6 and 8, immediately understood the concept of this story and felt a strong desire to show even more care towards the earth that we are so lucky to live on. I strongly recommend this to any parent with children pre-school and up. Such a wonderful resource for 'spinning' this whole situation in a positive and reinforcing way.' - Maddy Shaw; 'This clever little book which touches on how the Coronavirus has impacted the environment is one of my favourites. What happens when the earth gets sick? Perhaps it goes to the doctor or even takes a holiday. With adorable illustrations and an earth that is so cute you just want to give her a hug, Earth Takes a Break is a nice addition to the other Coronavirus children's books because it puts attention on the affect that our lives have on the earth.' - Kelley Donner - Best Coronavirus Children's Books 2020
