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"
