"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.

I take care of the earth because I know I can do little things every day to make a BIG difference.

I use both sides of the paper

and bring my own bags to the market because…

I love the trees

and I want the owls to have a place to live.

I turn off the faucet while I brush my teeth

and use less water for my baths because…

I love the fish and I want the oceans to stay blue.

I take the school bus and ride my bike because…

I love the stars and I want the air to be clear so I can see them sparkle.

I try to eat every bite on my plate

and save my leftovers because…

I love watching things grow and I want there to be enough food for everyone.

I remember to turn off the lights

and shut the refrigerator to save energy because…

I love the polar bears

and I want the snowmen to stay cool.

I throw garbage in the trash can

and recycle glass, aluminum, paper, and plastic because…

I love to walk barefoot in the grass

and I don’t want to move to Mars!

Most of all, I help take care of the earth because…

I want us ALL to be happy and healthy!

I bought this book for my four-year-old for Earth Day. It is full of fun images and vibrant colors. It is quite simple, but the world are simple for a beginning reader. He loves, loves, loves the underwear reference at the end. Todd Parr has become an important section of his book shelf.

This a wonderful book. Simple and meaningful. I teach preschool and the students all loved it, as does my 3 year old. He reads the book to himself at night. Great book for Earth Day!!!

I had been looking for a book for my preschoolers to learn about earth day. This book was simple enough for them but also shared lessons about earth day. They loved the poster in the book and were talking about the book after we read it for weeks. They liked the cut out in the book and liked to put their face in it! The book was colorful and grabbed the attention of the kids in my class who are not so keen on storytime. The price and barnes and noble was reasonable compared to the other book stores and with my member discount, even better!
