“Earthrise is especially important now, in a time where the world feels more divided than ever.” (Inspired by Savannah)

"Readers will enjoy learning about astronauts and outer space by reading this uplifting book." (School Library Connection)

"Earthrise captures an inspiring moment of space travel and should be included in all library and personal collections." (Canadian Review of Materials)
