I think we can all agree that the Earth is pretty special. It's home to mighty mountains, flowing bodies of water, majestic skies, creatures big and small, and perhaps the most interesting species of all...all of us!
Earth Day is a reminder to respect and take care of all the natural gifts around us. There are so many wonderful books that help little readers understand the importance of taking care of our beautiful planet.
Here are some top picks from our book shelf:
"I use both sides of the paper and bring my own bags to the market because I love the trees and want the owls to have a place to live."
- The Earth Book by Todd Parr
"Flightless penguin, waddling free,
Dips and dives in icy sea.
Wide-winged albatross sleeps afloat,
But breeds on islands quite remote."
- Home for a Penguin, Home for a Whale by Brenda Williams & Annalisa Beghelli
"We need to know the facts so we can make the right decisions...What we do matters."
- Looking after our Planet by Katie Daynes & Ilaria Faccioli
"Did you know...? If everyone recycled their newspapers, 250 million trees would be saved!"
- Questions and Answers about Recycling and Rubbish by Katie Daynes & Peter Donnelly
Wherever you reside in this great big world, we are all connected by our beautiful planet. Let's try our best to take care of it...so that it can take care of us. While we’re at it, let’s also take care of each other ❤️
Happy Earth Day, and as always, happy reading!
