Buy. You definitely want to purchase this book since it can be used as a jumping-off point for a discussion on other ways to become more planet friendly.
My friend read this to her class and they reacted positively to the simple illustrations and the idea behind the book.
Both my friend and I thought the book's message on conservation and things the children can do to help was excellent. The message is clear: There are things everyone can do if they love the earth and wish to make it a better place to live.
Nice bold, colorful illustrations and some excellent ideas encourage readers to become more eco-friendly.
We wished the book was longer!
