Gr 2-5–When each human is born, the Earth presents its many gifts. Air, green grass, 10 million species of living things with new ones being discovered every day, all these things are given by the Earth. But if people don’t take care of the Earth and its creatures, many species will disappear. The author and illustrator, who previously collaborated on I Have the Right to Be a Child, explain that each person has the right to stand up and work to protect the Earth’s creatures, land, and water through acts such as protesting. Sharing resources and limiting pollution offer partial solutions to some of the problems that plague the planet. Written as a pledge to take care of the planet and with beautiful illustrations, the book highlights some of the ways the Earth is in trouble and how people can take better care of it. The ideals of a healthy planet shine through in both the text and the bright, eye-catching illustrations.
VERDICT A nice addition for libraries on the importance of taking appropriate care of the Earth.
