In this edition, book theme is pollution and protection of our environment that is a great subject even for the smallest kids in order to emphasize the importance of this topic.
Some citizens who didn't think too much endanger the Bear Country's environment, resulting in Brother and Sister Bear foundation of Earthsavers Club.
And while trying to preserve healthy the only place where they want to live, they two together with small readers are learning how crucial is to live in a clean environment...
Due to all above-mentioned, I can recommend this book both for you and your preschool kids, to read together and afterwards speak about it.
By reading it, kids will be able to learn some new terms for their vocabulary like "conservation" and "recycle" that are everywhere around us but rarely someone makes an effort to explain to the children what they mean.
At times when the clean environment is becoming a crucial issue for the future generations, learning from the earliest years is extremely important.
If you have to purchase a replacement book from your local library that has a THICK hardcover, maybe this is what you were looking for:
Not only is RegentBook the correct booking binding publisher for the book at my local library, but they were a couple of bucks cheaper that Amazon! Switch publishers, Amazon!
Father Bear reads an article by Professor Actual Factual in the local newspaper, warning that Bear Country is in serious trouble because of pollution. Papa Bear responds "piffle". After all, he tells the cubs, look how beautiful it is outside our door!
Brother Bear points out that the beautiful colors of the sunset they're seeing is actually a result of harmful chemicals.
"Piffle", Father Bear again replies.
Brother Bear must do a report on endangered species, but the library books aren't much help. He decides to visit Prof. Actual Factual at the museum. While all looked well outside the Bear family stoop, other parts of Bear Country weren't so lovely: a fish is caught in a plastic soda can holder, Grizzly Gus--the local mechanic--dumps oil in the stream (causing the deaths of fish), and black smoke poured out of the chimney's at the old box factory.
The siblings ask Prof. Factual to come speak at their school. Inspired by the Professor's talk about the environment, the kids brainstorm ideas for recycling and cleaning up pollution--finally deciding to create the Earthsavers Club.
This is a great book for Earth Day or for teaching children about the consequences of pollution and using resources without replacing them. (For example, Papa Bear cuts down trees--but doesn't replace them by planting new ones.) He eventually joins the community environmental bandwagon--but only AFTER a bad dream.Read more ›
