Brains On! Presents...Earth Friend Forever

PreS-Gr 3–This book, from the hosts of the popular BrainsOn! podcasts, definitely captures readers’ hearts and minds in thought-provoking spreads in which the Earth, personified, narrates major human milestones like visiting the moon. Along the way, Earth tells of the beautiful friendship between it and humans, and being there as humans grow and develop, listing all the benefits this wonderful relationship provides. The clever images convey the joy and the connectivity between people and the planet. Then Earth, our friend forever, stops the happy tale by throwing bags, cartons, and other popular plastics at us because that is what we do to our best friend. Earth Friend Forever delineates all the human habits that are destroying its oceans and deserts and the large landfills of garbage further humanizing our sad planet by showing all the awful ways we are not honoring our friendship with our home. Our EFF brings all of us to a revelatory experience in hopes that we will restore our friend, our pal, our best buddy—the Earth.
VERDICT Earth Friend Forever will challenge children to be better friends but also offers the tools we need to change our fatal habits.
