Trouble on Earth Day
Why, you may ask, am I reviewing a book about Earth Day the day before Thanksgiving?
Trouble on Earth Day by Kathy Stemke is a cute picture book about a little squirrel who learns to appreciate and use what she has and to help someone else. What better time of year could there be to remind us all to do that?
Besides the appealing story and charming illustrations by Kurt Wilcken, the book includes many pages of activities to help kids appreciate the natural world and reuse things instead of discarding them. Some of those activities are projects kids could make that would be great Christmas presents.
So this is a perfect time of the year to get that book for kids.
