Right Where You Are Now: Painting Our Planet’s History

Reading Time: 2 minutes

In the crowded aisles of New York ComicCon, a quiet book called out to me. My eye was drawn to the painterly, slightly retro style, and as I thumbed through the book, I fell in love with all of the paintings that let kids know about the wild ride our planet has been on for the past 250 million years or so.

Right Where You Are Now, written by Lisa Montierth and illustrated by Ashley Burke, isn’t your run of the mill picture book. On each spread, a location familiar to kids is established followed by a vivid description of what once was.
