Children’s Earth Book

IMG_20130706_135602My daughter’s love of reading and our green lifestyle often leads us to choose books about Earth and the environment. We were recently introduced to author Dawn Wynne and her children’s book Earth Remembers When.  I immediately connected with Dawn.  A school teacher, certified Health Coach, and green and organic living speaker and writer, we share a lot in common.

Dawn’s book, Earth Remembers When, is not the typical children’s book. It is filled with facts about the environment, written in rhyme verse and in a way that can be understood by young children. It is also beautifully illustrated by Gloria Pineiro. Earth Remembers When addresses a variety of topics related to ways in which the Earth is being endangered. From climate changes to pollution to endangered species, the author explains to children the importance of these issues and how many occur from human influence. Her comparisons of past and present in relation to the possible future really send out a strong message. She then also offers ways that we can all contribute to helping restore and protect our planet.

My 6 year old daughter asked me to share her opinion on Earth Remembers When….

She says, “I like that it rhymes and has pretty pictures. I like that the pages flip open and that you have to find the pictures of the hidden Earth on each page. I also like the crafts and recipes in the back. I can’t wait to make the mac and cheese.” 😉

Indeed, the clever way the author put the book together kept my daughter (and me!) very engaged. I really appreciated the practical tips she included on each page, which even the youngest of readers can understand and accomplish. Dawn also offers healthy recipes and eco-friendly activities in the book, on her website and her blog. They truly help reinforce the idea that children are an integral part of creating a planet with clean air, unpolluted oceans, and real food. No child is too young to make a difference.

If you are looking for environmental awareness books to add to your family’s library, we highly recommend Earth Remembers When by Dawn Wynne.
