20 Easy Ways to Help Save the Earth, written by Pedro Rita, does just that. It puts being green into words that kids can understand. It shows the impact of being environmentally friendly, as well as what happens when people don't take care of our environment.
Before I got a chance to sit down and read the book with my son, he had started looking through it himself. From the pictures, he explained to me what was happening, and which pictures made "the Earth happy."
20 Easy Ways to Help Save the Earth is a great teaching tool. It encourages kids (and parents) to be Earth friendly through simple tasks, such as:
- Planting flowers or trees
- Turning off lights, tv, or other utilities when not in use
