Anywhere Farm By Phyllis Root

Back of Book:
You might think a farm means fields, tractors, and a barnyard full of animals. But you can plant a farm anywhere you like! A box or a bucket, a boot or a pan — almost anything can be turned into a home for green, growing things. Windows, balconies, and front steps all make wonderful spots to start. Who knows what plants you may choose to grow and who will come to see your new garden?
My Review:
This is a great book to share with children. This book shows readers that they can create a garden no matter where they life. It doesn’t take much to create one, you simply need soil, sunshine, some water and a seed. I love that this book encourages young and old alike to go and plant something beautiful. Many children who live in the city, do not realize that they can grow things in a planter box, or a small plot of earth. This story is beautifully crafted, with a rhyming pattern that readers won’t soon forget. The illustrations are diverse and show many different kinds of people planting seeds. Karas did a terrific job of drawing readers into each setting. Candlewick Press has published another fantastic picture book.

Back of Book:

Little Critter is on a mission! After watching a film about climate changes at school, Little Critter decides to do his part to slow down global warming. With the help of his family and friends, Little Critter begins to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Together they learn about the importance of not wasting water or energy. Join Little Critter as he plants a tree, makes a climate control machine, and helps the polar bears.

My Review:

I have always been a fan of the Little Critter books. This story is a great addition to any books discussing Earth Day.  Little Critter does everything he can to try to slow global warming. This story discusses recycling, planting trees, and conserving water. This book is a great read aloud for a younger audience to discuss the importance of protecting the earth.

Earth Day

Earth Day Everyday By Lisa Bullard

Back of Book:

On Earth Day, we find ways to help the Earth. Trina plants trees with her class. She forms an Earth Day club with her friends. What can you do to make every day Earth Day? Do your part to be a planet protector! Discover how to reduce, reuse, recycle, and more with Tyler and Trina in the Planet Protectors.

My Review:

My spring break is this week, so my class will be celebrating Earth Day on Monday. Earth Day Every Day is a perfect introduction to what Earth Day is about.  It fallows Trina as she discusses all the different ways humans can help save the earth. The book is broken up in sections, this makes it perfect to read to younger, more wiggly audiences.  The back of the book has directions to make a compost pile. It also has a glossary with Earth Day vocabulary.  I am looking forward to reading this to my students on Monday.
