Summary
"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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With illustrations that look as though they might have been done by enthusiastic children themselves, Parr's book offers first-person advice about ways to take care of the earth. Although the suggestions are fine ( I turn off the faucet while I brush my teeth ) the reasons behind the actions ( because I love the fish ) could use more explanation for such a young audience. The strong appeal comes from the simple artwork done in Parr's signature style, which features pure colors, objects and people outlined in thick black ink, and kids whose round faces are comprised of two dots for eyes and upturned lines for mouths. Young children will get a kick out of the vivid art (and the funny touches, like a fish wearing glasses); feel helpful when they do things like write on both sides of the paper; and perhaps intuit why protecting the environment is a good thing, if not exactly making the connection between saving paper and saving trees.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "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. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
