Pacha’s Pajamas: A Tale Told by Nature is an environmental nature book for children written by Dave Room and Allah El Henson. Pacha was a young girl who dreamed big dreams; they were dreams filled with music, animals and dance. When she was three, her mother gave her a magical pair of pajamas; they were covered with the images of animals, whales, plants and stars. Pacha loved her soft and cuddly new pajamas, and that night she experienced the most amazing of dreams, even bigger and more spectacular than her usual big dreams. She woke up in her dream to find herself deep in a forest behind a large tree. From her vantage point, she could see a whale in the ocean and a hummingbird, who was conversing with the whale. She tried to move closer to hear what they were saying. Then a jaguar walked into the clearing, and the tree opened its eyes, and a pebble and a mushroom arrived and spoke out -- everything was alive and ready to celebrate a nature festival, a party for all species together as one family. The authors also include a glossary of new words at the end of Pasha’s dream adventure story.

Dave Room and Allah El Henson’s environmental nature book for kids, Pacha’s Pajamas, is an upbeat and unabashedly magical little book about celebrating nature and Mother Earth. The Nature Festival that the animals put on is fantastic and includes rap lyrics for kids and ample opportunities for young readers to get involved in the singing, dancing and general exuberance and joy of the story. Along the way, they get to learn about biomes, evolution, synchronicity and the different species that share the earth with us. The illustrations are marvelous! They’re bright and boldly colored. Pacha’s facial expressions are superbly crafted, as well as those of the elephants, hippos and other wild creatures participating in the Pachamomma Festival. This is a grand book for story time, but it’s also well suited for moderate to advanced readers to try on their own. Pacha’s Pajamas: A Tale Told by Nature is most highly recommended.
