Earth Day Birthday (Sharing Nature With Children Book) Reviews
I think this would be a hit with kids due to the beautiful illustrations and "song" aspect. Honestly, the writing is nothing spectacular as it is basically "The Twelve Days of Christmas" but with "Earth Day Birthday" instead of Christmas. So, we get twelve wolves a-howling, two sleeping bears, an eagle in a blue sky... but, it's all quite nice and the illustrations are, as I said, quite nice--realistic but accessible. There's a section in the back giving the history of Earth Day and some ideas for how to celebrate it.
Wonderful book for Earth Day. Resource list in the back of book along with a few suggestions for activities.
A beautiful book that celebrates nature and the "Earth Day Birthday" to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas. The book ends with a two page spread showing a family both enjoying and caring for nature; the text says, "On the day known as Earth Day, as every day should be, we care for creatures as our family." At the back of the book, there is a page about the history of Earth Day and ideas of things to do for an Earth Day party, such as making an Earth Day birthday card or writing a poem about the earth.The illustrations are beautiful examples of photo-realism with an interesting smattering of personification on the various animals. The colors are rich earth tones and bright ocean blues.
Sung to the "Twelve Days of Christmas," this is a charming book that celebrates wildlife and has a great message at its conclusion about caring for our environment. This would be a nice way to introduce preschool - primary grades to the conservation message.
