How are we the same and different?
Children's Literature - Karen ScialabbaKnowing that the early years are an important time to teach children about the environment, many parents worry that conversations about pollution, preservation, and endangered species are too abstract for children to grasp. But with We are the Earth we can teach children environmental awarenessbrilliantly! With brightly colored illustrations, full-color photographs, and an easy-to-understand identification of all of the elements that comprise an ecological system, the child-friendly text of this primary book focuses on three key concepts: First, the earth is our "home"; second, we need to protect and preserve the plants and creatures who share our home with us; and third, environmental harmony depends upon "the people connection," or the need for our active care and concern for the earth and each other. Peppered with suggestions for maintaining an "attitude of gratitude," this book will inspire children to make positive environmental action part of their everyday lives. Reviewer: Karen Scialabba
