Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
Saving the Earth can seem like a daunting task to anyone, let alone a first grader. When Mrs. Connor's class began to talk about celebrating Earth Day by putting up a poster that read "Save the Earth," Emma was distressed that she "did not know how." Other class members made vows to do such things as "I will rescue the polar bears!" "I will plant a forest!" and "I will save the dolphins!" Even Mrs. Connor thought that these were big ideas. When Emma told her dad that she did not have any big ideas, he wisely advised her that they could "start small." Emma and her dad began to do things to help the Earth; they shopped for vegetables locally, used less water for brushing teeth, turned off the TV (somewhat reluctantly), picked up trash on their walks, recycled cans and bottles, and rode their bikes instead of using the car. On April 22, Eigen drew a picture of polar bears, Katie talked about forests, Michael made dolphin noises, and Emma told about all of the "small" things that she and her dad had done during the week. She made a list of her ideas: "Slow down! Recycle! Only use what you need!" And so it was that Emma influenced her whole class. Mrs. Connor said, "Emma's small ideas are pretty big." The back cover has a list of things that people can do to help the Earth, including suggestions for recycling, using less water for showers, turning off lights, and the usual "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle! This book is part of the Robin Hill School "Ready-to-Read" series and is rated Level 1. It will be perfect for thinking about Earth Day efforts for everyone. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
