Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
This title is part of the "Planet Protectors" series. In this book Trina explains how she is an Earthling (meaning she lives on planet Earth). And Earthlings are the ones who "made this Earth mess. So we Earthlings should fix it!" She then explains how Earth Day is a special day that happens every year on April 22nd. On that day people from around the world do something to help make the Earth a better place to live. There are many things to do: plant trees, save money to help animals, trade things you do not want for gently used things you do want, and do activities that do not require power. There is even an activity where Trina instructs readers how to make their own worm compost bin. With bright illustrations of cartoony kids and an abundance of simple ideas, all young readers will enjoy learning about what they can do to help celebrate Earth Day. A brief glossary, index, and list of further resources complete the book. Reviewer: Joella Peterson

4.5stars Trina is worried about the Earth. She knows that the Earth inhabitants, we Earthlings, do not care for our home as well as we should. We hurt the Earth by throwing away too much, making the air dirty, and wasting power. Trina thinks we Earthlings should do what her mother says, "Clean up your own messes." Trina has many ideas to help the Earth, not only on Earth day, but also on every day of the year. Trina traded an old puzzle for a used soccer ball on "Earth Trade Day." During "Earth Nights," Trina and her family have loads of fun playing board games. They ignore the television, computer, and video games on this special night. All of those things use power, which makes dirt that hurts the Earth. On the official "Earth Day," on April 22, Trina and her classmates planted trees. Trees produce oxygen and help clean the air. All of these things help animals, too. Anything that hurts the Earth will hurt wild animals, our pets, and us Earthlings, which is why Trina wants to make it Earth Day, Every Day. This is a nice chapter book for middle graders. There are three chapters, a special section on how to compost, a glossary, links, places you can learn more, and an index. For a small 28-page book, it packs a large drawer full of information on helping the Earth become a better, cleaner, and safer place. The illustrations are crisp, colorful, and sometimes funny. They help tell the story right alongside the text. If Trina's smile is her happiness barometer, she is an exuberant girl. She wears a red band on her head and her eyes are big, round, and alert. According to her brother, Trina has a big mouth. She uses that bigness to call all her neighbors out on Earth Day and on Saturday Earth Trade Days. Get your children (your entire family), helping the Earth on April 22nd each and every year. Since we are Earthlings, we should be taking care of our home on a daily basis. This book will help children understand what Earth Day is and how to help. There is humor, colorful illustrations to help understand the concepts Trina talks about, and some great ideas and resources to help make Earth Day, Every Day.
