Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Treadway
Youngsters discover important U.S. holidays in the “Let’s Celebrate” Pebble Plus series such as Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Groundhog Day, The 100th Day of School, Memorial Day, and President’s Day. A bright-smiling girl hugs a globe next to a halogen light bulb and a recycle bin overflowing with an assortment of household items. Every page showcases colorful photographs of a variety of ways to get involved. There are vintage black and white photos to accompany the history of the environmental movement when the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. Very basic text with large font rendered in short sentences targets Early Readers. In addition, word count, grade, and early-intervention level is provided below the Index. Interactive pages invite engaging methods to reduce, reuse, and recycle for all citizens who want to preserve Earth’s resources and lessen man’s polluting impact on the planet. New laws are passed, annual community cleanup days established, and educational programs launched by increased, focused efforts across local, state and federal agencies around the world. A table of contents, a “Recycle Activity,” read more section, Internet sites, glossary, and index create a simple reference book to help young people recognize and participate in annual celebrations. Reviewer: Susan Treadway; Ages 4 to 8.
