Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4—The narrator states, "I take care of the earth because I know I can do little things every day to make a BIG difference." Parr then offers a practical catalog of simple activities easily managed by even quite young children, followed by clear explanations of how those simple things can have a large impact on the health of our planet. "I use both sides of the paper and bring my own bags to market because…I love the trees and I want the owls to have a place to live." The book is "printed with recycled materials and nontoxic soy inks." The vibrantly colored cartoons with heavy black outlines resemble those a child might create. Useful as an introduction to the subject, this is a bright and cheerful presentation.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ

From Booklist

With illustrations that look as though they might have been done by enthusiastic children themselves, Parr’s book offers first-person advice about ways to take care of the earth. Although the suggestions are fine (“I turn off the faucet while I brush my teeth”) the reasons behind the actions (“because I love the fish”) could use more explanation for such a young audience. The strong appeal comes from the simple artwork done in Parr’s signature style, which features pure colors, objects and people outlined in thick black ink, and kids whose round faces are comprised of two dots for eyes and upturned lines for mouths. Young children will get a kick out of the vivid art (and the funny touches, like a fish wearing glasses); feel helpful when they do things like write on both sides of the paper; and perhaps intuit why protecting the environment is a good thing, if not exactly making the connection between saving paper and saving trees. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper

My son grabbed this at preschool to show me when on his birthday he got to pick his favorite book to read to everyone. He talked about how much he loves the earth and that is why he wants to pick up the garbage....he is learning responsibility for the earth in a positive joyful way. It's terrific. So, we bought it for him to give to his dad for his birthday..so they can read it together.

Another fantastic book from popular children's author Todd Parr. His unique style of colorful illustrations and simple text are a smash hit with preschool and kindergarten audiences every time. This is the perfect book to read to your preschool or kindergarten class or child on Earth Day. Each page highlights one way young children can help make the world a better place followed by a "because" statement. Adding because statements makes the message in this book even more powerful. It's not about just telling kids to do something, but also giving them the reasons why it's important; therefore it becomes more meaningful to them. Parr also has a great sense of humor and knows his audience well as evidenced by the mention of underwear in the detachable poster that is included on the last page of the book. The Earth Book is sure to become a favorite with your child or class as they squeal with delight at the very thought of putting their underwear in the refrigerator!

This is such a cute book. I'm doing my student teaching in a kindergarten classroom and the students LOVED, LOVED this book. They were able to follow along and understand why it's important to take care of the earth. I would definitely recommend this book.

I LOVE this author's work and always look forward to what he does next. I certainly wasn't disappointed with THE EARTH BOOK as it shows kids in unique simple, fun ways what they can do to help. One of the pages even tears out to become a fun and useful poster. There are a lot of kid's book about the environment, but this one really stands out!

After our recycling unit in the fall, we returned to this in April for EARTH DAY. Honestly, there is not a single Todd Parr book that I don't adore.
His messages are spot on, and easy enough for my pre-K students to understand. They find the list of 10 things to do hilarious, especially putting underwear in the freezer- they just wait daily for me to read that to them, and it always makes us all laugh!

As with other books for small children by Todd Parr, The EARTH book is a delight in words and pictures. It explains in simple language some important ideas about the earth and engenders a love of the planet in small children. Every parent is encouraged to get this book and others by Parr and read them to their children. Pre-schools would do well to have these books available as well.

Kudos to Todd Parr for writing and illustrating great books for kids. This is the perfect book to share during Earth Week and also all year long. Our children need to be taught to be good stewards of the Earth and this book is a great example of it.
