I experienced this book in its audio version. It’s a creative and engaging resource to inform young children about what they can do to take care of the Earth. The sentences are simple and include activities that many children could relate to. I especially like that the author connects these activities with a reason to do them ”I turn off the water while I brush my teeth because I love fish and I want the oceans to stay blue.” The potential use for this book is awesome. It clearly can promp [...]

The EARTH Book is a very typical Todd Parr book. Through a simple language and colorful pictures he describes what young children can do to help the environment. Parr gives a lot of concrete examples on how to reduce waste and recycle, and at the end there is a poster to recap the message and inspire children and their families to remember to take care of the environment. Even though he sticks to the theme throughout the book I feel like some of the message gets a little lost behind the nice, co [...]

The Earth book introduces students to the concepts of "reduce, reuse, recycle" and ways to protect the Earth. Teachers can use this book to empower students to think critically and protect the Earth in their own daily activities.

I love this book!, and all of Todd Parr's books that I have read. I love his simple, bright, colorful illustrations and the simple yet filled with meaning and importance text. In this book, he explains that we should recycle, use public transportation, use less water etc because we want the world to be a wonderful place for everyone.

A picture book introduction to everyday ecology. Parr's vibrant artwork and first-person narration work well to demonstrate that together we can all make a difference. An especially nice touch is the fact that the book is printed with recycled materials and nontoxic soy inks.

I gave this book one star because of the absurd advice to kids to put their underwear in the freezer when it's hot. I have never heard of that as being a way to help the earth!

This is a really cute, informative book about how we can all make a difference in small ways. I think it's important to teach these lessons to kids early and often. :) Save the planet, kids.

Bright, high contrast colors combine with Todd Parr’s distinctive thick, bold lines and naïve illustration style to add visual interest to this environmentally conscious book. Printed with recycled materials and nontoxic soy inks, Parr’s Earth Book would be an excellent choice for sharing with children on Earth Day, or as a basic introduction to the importance of recycling and caring for the environment any day. Todd Parr’s world is super-friendly and fun—populated with the happy, smili [...]

Tod Parr’s The Earth Book , looks like it has been illustrated by kids, in a professional kind of way! Love the fact that the two children holding up the earth on the front cover are wearing odd shoes. It is a colorful, simple, very kid-friendly and persuasive look at the reasons we look after the planet. We love trees because we “want the owls to have a place to live” is a compelling example. Some of the extrapolation, however, may be a little understated for the younger reader, for examp [...]

This book is a great book to teach toddlers about Earth Day and taking care of the Earth. It uses simple text and bright child-like drawings to talk about all the big and little things that kids can do to help make a big difference in protecting the environment. It does it in positive terms that even young kids can relate to. An example, "I use both sides of the paper and bring my own bags to the market because.I love trees and I want the owls to have a place to live." The people and animals in [...]

This book is a perfect book to elaborate on ways to protect the environment. After having discussed the concept of why Earth needs to be treated with kindness, the students can use this book to illustrate how they will contribute to making the Earth a beautiful place now and in the future. The EARTH Book touches on many controversies going on world wide such as global warming and air pollution. After reading this story, it would be appropriate to inform the students of such controversies and exp [...]

This is an awesome book to read with young children about the Earth! It gives concrete examples of how we can be careful in our homes and schools to save energy. It also has a bunch of cause and effect pieces, explaining how if we turn down the furnace, we can save energy and put on a sweater to stay warm instead. I thought this was a beautiful book to share with children and give them a clear idea of how we can save energy. It also has a fold out poster in the back pages which has a numbered li [...]

Reading Level: Pre-K & PrimaryGenre: InformationalReview: This book, geared towards very young children, describes ways that children can help protect the environment. The illustrations are large and colorful. The language is very simple The action items listed oscillate between being very heartwarming and over-the-top. Sometimes, I thought the message was lost. I worry that this book might be a bit too preachy to stand the test of time, but then again, it is an informational book for very y [...]

I liked the message that it has, but I don't particularly like the examples that were used: ie: How does someone turn off the lights and shut the refrigerator because they love polar bars and want snowmen to stay cool? How about: to use less electrical resources and have a reduced electric bill?ie: recycling in order to walk barefoot on grass or not to have to move to mars? I can walk barefoot on grass or not move to mars if I don't recycle. Just a very odd comparison. I would not buy this parti [...]

I love Todd Parr and the children do too! His ability to create simple images that convey a meaning and stand-out along with simple messages that convey a deeper meaning, is beyond comparison. We talk about taking care of the Earth constantly, but it is an abstract concept. This book has greatly aided our discussions and understandings of Earth conservation, helping us create caring awareness and actions.

I enjoy that this book looks like it was drawn by children. The fact that it explains and says reason about conserving resources is even better. This is a wonderful to have for every kid, so they can learn from an early helping the earth is important. I love how colorful it is, really catches the eye and simply to understand. My son really enjoyed this book, had to read it to him twice the very same day my husband and I got it for him.

This is a great book to use in a science class. You can introduce global warming and what the necessary precautions are in order to delay it. The only reason that I gave this book four stars instead of five is because of the art. All of Todd Parr's books have a particular art style that I am just particularly not fond of. However, I am sure there are a ton of people who love the art, it just isn't for me.

I read this to Ben without having looked through it before. I had to explain every other page. The book assumes you know the connection between specific conservation efforts and trees/animals/global warming/etc. It's fine, but a little over the head of the kind of little person who would read it. Also I don't want my kids feeling guilty and thinking a polar bear will die every time they turn on a light or something. It's a bit pushy for my taste.

Another one of Todd Parr's excellent books to teach character. This book is great to teach citizenship, especially in the context of honoring Earth Day. Kirkus' Review states that "the structural format works well to bring complex issues such as global warming into a simple context that kids can connect with." Although the language is simple, the issues are complex so I would use this well any grade, K-5!

This is an excellent book that teaches children how to take care of the Earth. I recommend this book for grades 2nd-4th. This book teaches students that, although they may be small, they can make a big difference by contributing to keeping the Earth healthy. Students learn about environmental protection, recycling and they learn how to create an eco-friendly environment. I've done many recycling projects in the past and I will definitely use this book as a reference in the future.

My five-year-old son picked out this book from the library this week. He LOVES Todd Parr. I do not. Even though I do not love Todd Parr, I have to admit that this book was extremely well done. He conveys a serious message, one about conserving our resources to save the earth, with his trademark humor and colorful stick figures. Even though there was not one single pair of strangely placed underwear in this book, he did still reference underwear on the page of helpful tips.

Todd Parr is a great author. I love his style of writing and his engaging illustrations. I used this book for a science lesson and it was very effective. It is an easy read for young studnets so that they can understand how important it is to use our resources wisely and reserve what to can in order to save the Earth.

I thought this was a really cute book as well. It bring science into the classroom in a little bit different way though. It talks about different ways to save energy and not waste different things like food and water. I think this would be a good introduction for going green and could start kids in an activity to think about the planet and all the damage that needs to be reduced.

Great book with bright and colorful pictures and a good message to children. It's an excellent book about simple ways kids can make a difference on the earth such as, using both sides of the paper and reusing bags. This story would be perfect for children 5-8. It could even be useful for adults to read to remind them of simple ways to help the environment.

Very simple environmental/conservation messages are offered (shut the refrigerator door, don't litter) to a youthful audience. The illustrations are atrocious, but the message is good. Read this one to very young children who can absorb the very simple environmental tips without being distracted by the scribbling that passes for artwork.

This is a great book for young children to start learning about recycling. Parr writes in a way that is fun for children to read. The illustrations are bright and colorful. This book will pull kids right in. Classrooms can start a recycling project within their class. This will give the children a chance to be hands on and see things in action.

This book came across as oversimplifying big problems. The illustrations were cute, but the reasons for following suggestions left me thinking that these ideas could be used or ignored on a whim. It wasn't convincing enough.
