The Earth Book [hc]
By Todd Parr
I take care of the earth because I know I can do little things every day to make a BIG difference..."
With his signature blend of playfulness and sensitivity, Todd Parr explores the important, timely subject of environmental protection and conservation in this eco-friendly picture book. Featuing a circular die-cut Earth on the cover, and printed entirely with recycled materials and nontoxic soy inks, this book includes lots of easy, smart ideas on how we can all work together to make the Earth feel good- from planting a tree and using both sides of the paper, to saving energy and reusing old things in new ways. 40 pages
"Young children will get a kick out of the vivid art (and the funny touches, like a fish wearing glasses); feel helpful when they do things like write on both sides of the paper; and perhaps intuit why protecting the environment is a good thing..." -Booklist (Preschool-Grade 1)
"Useful as an introduction to the subject, this is a bright and cheerful presentation." -School Library Journal (Kindergarten-Grade 4)
"[Parr's] approach to this complex topic is simple but not simplistic, and this introduction to the subject is both useful and entertaining." -Kirkus Reviews (Ages 5-8)
