The EARTH Book
by Todd Parr
Borrow Borrow Borrow
"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 sensitiviy, 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.
Best of all, the book includes an interior gatefold with a poster with tips/reminders on how kids can "go green" everyday. Equally whimsical and heartfelt, this sweet homage to our beautiful planet is sure to inspire readers of all ages to do their part in keeping the Earth happy and healthy.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    March 1, 2010
    In Parr's signature chunky style, smiley-faced kids share what they love about the planet and what they do to protect it. “I turn off the faucet while I brush my teeth,” says a purple boy in a hot pink bathroom. On another spread, two figures stand in a sunny garden with neatly planted rows of produce: “I love watching things grow and I want there to be enough food for everyone.” The earnest message springs off the page. Ages 4–8.

    K-Gr 4-The narrator states, "I take care of the earth because I know I can do little things every day to make a BIG difference." Parr then offers a practical catalog of simple activities easily managed by even quite young children, followed by clear explanations of how those simple things can have a large impact on the health of our planet. "I use both sides of the paper and bring my own bags to market because]I love the trees and I want the owls to have a place to live." The book is "printed with recycled materials and nontoxic soy inks." The vibrantly colored cartoons with heavy black outlines resemble those a child might create. Useful as an introduction to the subject, this is a bright and cheerful presentation."Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ"
