With its emphasis on shaping both individual and adult behavior, the book is likely to make reminders to separate recycling, carry reusable shopping bags, turn off lights...A concise but thorough environmental primer for young readers enhanced by colorful and attractive illustrations.

Synopsis

With easy-to-understand language and colorful graphics, this fun and informative book introduces children to actions that help make our planet healthier-make less garbage; repair; reuse; recycle; compost; plant a tree; don't waste electricity or water. Simple explanations of electricity, carbon dioxide, global warming, and renewable energy, and the importance of trees and water, add meaning to the actions. A perfect book for Earth Day or any day to teach children about the importance of preserving and protecting our environment.
