Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Little Critter learns about Earth Day in school, and the most alarming news for him is that the polar bears' habitat is disappearing. He decides that he needs to find a way to keep the Polar ice from melting. He and his dad do some research at home, and Little Critter takes things a bit too far—turning off lights is good, but not when you are in the room. Turning off computers and the like that draw energy is also good, as is using water more carefully. Projects such as recycling cans, newspapers, and the like generate money that can be used for causes such as the one Little Critter is supporting—We Love Polar Bears. On Earth Day, his class plants trees—which is a fairly traditional activity—trees help clear the air. Little Critter papers the town (probably not the best idea) with signs that say "reduce, reuse, and recycle." The story gets a bit far-fetched when he tries to develop a climate control machine, but, as his dad points out, all of his efforts have brought much needed attention to the things that we can do to conserve and protect the Earth. Kids will enjoy the antics and also get the message—conservation is good whether or not you accept the premise of global warming. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

Good way to teach kids that their actions affect others and simple, everyday decisions and action can make a difference regarding the broader spectrum.
