Children's Literature - Christine Cassello
This book tells the history of Earth Day from its proposal to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) by John Mc Connell in 1969 to the present. Mc Connell wrote the proclamation and designed the flag symbol for Earth Day. On April 22, 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin began the first National Earth Day celebration and in 1990 it became International with over 140 countries and 200 million people taking part. The book explains that the reason for the day is to call attention to the condition of our land, water and air and how we have damaged them and need to reverse and prevent future damage before all of us become extinct. The book has full color photographs on each page of the earth, and Earth Day activities. There are "Did you know?" facts on every left side page and suggestions of ways to celebrate Earth Day and care for the environment every day. A glossary at the end of the book explains scientific words that the reader may not know. Reviewer: Christine Cassello
