Let’s Celebrate Earth Day (Holidays and Heroes)
This is a book about caring for the earth. The author is Barbara deRubertis. Some things I learned from this book are: air pollution can make people and animals get sick, yucky waste gets dumped into rivers and lakes, and oil spills can make plants and animals die. Earth Day was started because people wanted to take care of the earth. A man who was a U.S. senator named Gaylord Nelson came up with this idea. “He asked Republican Congressman Pete McCloskey to help him sponsor an Earth Day event on April 22, 1970.” This book shows pictures of people who want to care for the earth, like Congressman Pete McCloskey. (I noticed that he has the same last name as the person who wrote Make Way for Ducklings and I thought that was neat.) I learned ways to take care of air, water, land, and plants. There are photographs, but not drawings. I like the photographs of girls doing things like picking apples! This is a great book for kids who care for the earth. “Although April 22 is the official date for Earth Day, we now know there are many, many ways to be Earth-wise every day.” I think I will want to read this book more than once. It gives good ways to celebrate Earth Day.
