For this celebration of our Earth — and the most topical theme of our time — distinguished anthologist Wendy Cooling has chosen poems to make children look, think, and ask questions. Why are trees so important? How are highways damaging our countrysides? What can we do about garbage? What can we do to protect our Earth for the future? Strong, colorful illustrations resonate, making this a gift book with a difference. Poets include John Agard, Dionne Brand, Tony Bradman, Tony Chen, Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve, Grace Nichols, Thomas Hardy, Ian Souter, John Milton, Tony Bradman, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Alan Brownjohn, William Blake, Benjamin Zephaniah, Christina Rossetti, Ogden Nash, Andrew Fusek Peters, and other poets from all over the world.
