Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 4–Written to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas," this song celebrates Earth Day and 12 different creatures that inhabit the planet. The lyrics begin, "On the first Earth Day Birthday the wide world gave to me… A bald eagle in the sky." Other species spotlighted include grizzlies, panthers, salmon, fawns, and owls. The vibrant double-page paintings printed on glossy paper depict the animals in their native habitats and are large enough to be seen if shared with a group. One caveat: the activity described in the verses does not always match what appears in the pictures. For instance, the illustration for "Eleven seals a-swimming" shows only two seals in water while the remaining nine rest nearby on the ice. The concluding pages provide a brief history of Earth Day, ideas for gifts that children could give the Earth (e.g., plant a tree), and the lyrics and music. With its realistic artwork, this attractive package would make an appealing sing-along supplement to a unit or storytime on Earth Day.–Lynn K. Vanca, Akron-Summit County Public Library, Richfield, OH

More About the Author

Hi, my name is Pattie Schnetzler. My favorite things are reading, watching movies and having fun. Besides being a writer, I am also a nurse.

Since third grade, I have loved writing stories that used my imagination. Ideas come from all around me. My son gave me the idea for Ten Little Dinosaurs. My daughter gave me the idea for Desert Rose - the horse in Widdermaker, and illustrator Jim Harris, gave me the idea to write Widdermaker and Fast 'n' Snappy. Earth Day Birthday came from my love of animals.

Writing is a wonderful way to express your self. Keep at it and you can be an author too.

My grandson's birthday is on Earth Day, so what more appropriate could this book be? Each child in his Kindergarten class donates a book to the class on their birthday, so I bought him this book to take to his class. You can not imagine what a hit it has turned out to be. The children read/sing it everyday. The pictures are fantasic and the narrative beautiful. This book rates 5++++ stars!!

A perfect way to celebrate Earth Day every day for you and your child. Earth Day Birthday shows twelve different species of animals in their natural habitats. The catchy sing-along text combined with the awesome action illustrations truly make this book a treasure!

Librarians and teachers looking for a great theme book to share on Earth Day will delight in this one. The lively rhyme may be sung to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas. The animals portrayed have all been brought back from the brink of extinction, which proves the effectiveness of conservation programs, and the gentle, detailed illustrations portray a dazzling variety of ecosystems. It will complement any teaching shelf.

Format: Paperback
Earth Day Birthday is a beautifully illustrated picture book for young readers, demonstrating the wonder and importance of the planet's varied environment and the amazing creatures who thrive in it. The text by Pattie Schnetzler is patterned after the popular "Twelve Days of Christmas" song; each two-page spread features lavish color illustrations and lyrics such as "On the eighth Earth Day Birthday the wide world gave to me... / Eight cranes a-dancing / six owls a-hooting / five spotted fawns / four salmon leaping / three panthers creeping / two grizzlies sleeping / and a bald eagle in a blue sky." The final two pages offer a brief history and incentive to celebrate Earth Day, as well as the simple music for singing aloud. Wonderfully enhanced with the artwork of Chad Wallace, Earth Day Birthday is a counting book classic to share with preschool and kindergarten age boys and girls.
