I love this book. It is simple enough for my Kindergarteners. The flaps in the book also makes it really engaging.

HASH(0xa32470c0) out of 5 stars Timely eco-friendly kids book Oct. 5 2008
By T Finch - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I finally found a book for empowering the inner environmentalist at an early age. What's most impressive about this book are the bold and creative illustrations and graphic design.

The message is simply put -- what can kids do to help the environment. From remembering to turn off a light to turning off tap water, planting and recycling, all the tips are easy for the young reader to absorb.

It also makes a great book to buy, read to children and re-gift either for a birthday gift to a friend or library!

HASH(0xa3247114) out of 5 stars Simply stated and an important message for young children! Nov. 14 2008
By Shannon B. Lipan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I teach pre-k and am always looking for books that teach young children an awareness about the world around them. This book nails it! The author keeps the text at one simply stated sentence per page with an option to read the smaller text if your child/children are ready for a more complex explanation. The pages/illustrations are very unique and fun for a child to explore. I can't recommend this book enough, it belongs in every classroom!

HASH(0xa324754c) out of 5 stars There are better books for learning about saving the earth! July 21 2010
By Texas Girl - Published on

We purchased this book based on a review in the Fort-Worth Star Telegram for Earth Day and although it is cute and has some helpful tips...there are other books that help teach kids about saving the earth, recycling and reusing. This book seemed to focus on some of the simpler things like turning off lights and we were hoping for more substance!

HASH(0xa32476a8) out of 5 stars Perfect for Earth Day April 19 2009
By Madigan McGillicuddy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Bold, die-cut pages printed on 100% recycled paper demonstrate easy things that youngsters can do to help better the planet. The eye-catching yellow cover is a definite attention grabber, and the die-cut light bulb on the front hints at the creatively arranged pages inside. Laid out in the simplest possible terms, the book gives empowering advice for the very youngest child. On one of my favorite spreads, a blue-lined "page" covered with child's doodlings says, "I use..." and on the reverse: "both sides of the paper." What child wouldn't feel virtuously pleased with themselves at being able to do that?

The only tip offered in the book that I had a quibble with was the suggestion to unplug your tv when you're not using it... I know if I did this I'd have to reboot my cable connection and reprogram my VCR, which would be a pretty big hassle. And I can't think of too many parents who'd be comfortable letting their young ones plug and unplug major appliances on a consistent basis (but maybe that's the point? People should be watching less tv anyway.)

Some of my other favorite tips included "plant seeds and help them grow" and "sort the recycling." The final page features a night sky with a lift-the-flap revealing a colorful planet Earth with adorably blobby continents, "All because... I love my world." The bright colors and shapes made me think of those other greats of die-cut and moveable books, Ed Emberley and Louis Ehlert. Perfect for Earth Day or for any budding environmentalists out there.
