Celebrate Earth Day !

Earth Day is April 22 !! I love to be green everyday. Here is a fun book to share with any elementary classroom!

The Earth Book by Todd Parr

A story of environmental protection and conservation in this eco-friendly picture book. I love that this book has a circular die-cut Earth on the cover, and is printed entirely with recycled materials and nontoxic soy inks. The book includes lots of easy, smart ideas on how we can all work together to make the Earth feel good by planting a tree, using both sides of the paper, and reusing old things in new ways.

After reading this book aloud, I have each student make their own page with the beginning of the sentence "I take care of the earth because.... "
After I check their spelling, they illustrate their page and then I laminate each picture. I hang them in the hall for a few weeks and then I make a classroom book out of the pages.

Happy Reading !

  1. I love making classroom books! Nothing motivates kids to read like reading their own words, :)
