The books listed below are perfect for teaching baby/toddlers all about Earth Day through colorful pictures and fun stories on how to care for our Earth not just on this special day but everyday.
“Unless someone like you…cares a whole awful lot…nothing is going to get better…It’s not.” Long before saving the earth became a global concern, Dr. Seuss, speaking through his character the Lorax, warned against mindless progress and the danger it posed to the earth’s natural beauty.
The Earth Book
“I take care of the earth because I know I can do little things every day to make a BIG difference…”. Printed with recycled materials and nontoxic soy inks, this picture book includes lots of easy, smart ideas on how we can 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.
Big Earth, Little Me
Printed with organic-soy-based ink, this simple picture book with flaps is made for young readers by teaching 10 simple, everyday ways to save the world! From the adorable cut paper collage illustrations to the simple text, Big Earth, Little Me is a book that thinks globally, but focuses locally.
Little things we do every day can make a big difference in helping our Earth. Kids will discover all the simple things they can do to help the world in this book made from 98% post consumer recycled materials and printed with eco-friendly inks. This book’s simple content inspires children to love and respect the natural world and the parent spread at the back of each book shows how easy it is to practice/teach earth-friendly habits right at home.
The Earth and I
This story celebrates friendship that one child has with the Earth. They play together, listen to each other, and nourish each other. But when the Earth is sad, the child is sad–so he finds a way to make his friend, the Earth, happy.
