S is for Save the Planet, written by Brad Herzog and illustrated by Linda Holt Ayriss. Sleeping Bear, HB Fenn, 2009. $19.95 ages 6 and up
"B is for bright idea
a bulb that lasts much longer."
Using a familiar format, the author shares with his readers a gentle reminder that we are visitors on this planet we call Earth and we must take steps to ensure its future, if we want to continue to enjoy life as we know it. It is up to all of us!
Much will change over the next ten years if politicians and the earth’s people work together to make things better for all. From A to Z, we are inundated with ideas that can begin to make the changes we must make to live better lives. Take care with lights, conserve fuel, recycle, reduce, reuse…. the messages are worth repeating until we all determine to take a bigger role in protecting our home. This is one of the books in the Planet Earth alphabet set and will be useful as additional information for those seeking to make that difference.
