Earth Day matters to all of us and this week I’ve focused a lot on younger children, activities for them and books that are geared more for the early childhood age group. What about older children? Barefoot Books has us covered with this new book they are presenting called Earth Tales. A beautiful hard covered books that is full of gorgeous illustrations, folktales and cultural diversity exploring Australia, Nigeria, Southwest U.S., Bali, Kazakhstan, India and Wales.
What I love best about this book is that older children, 6-10 could easily read this alone or teachers and parents could use the nature activities in the book to do with a group or individual child. The book can also be read aloud to children ages 4-8 so it really is a book that covers many age groups. Besides being rich in culture the book celebrates Earth Day by drawing attention to living in harmony with nature. There are many eco-friendly tips and activities to use in the book for all months of the year, not just Earth Month.
For the month of April 2009 Barefoot Books and Eco-Libris are planting a tree for each copy of Earth Tales that is sold. Giving back to the Earth while teaching about living in harmony with it but in addition to all of this good news – Barefoot Books will also be giving away one copy to a lucky Green and Clean Mom reader!
