Feel the wind blow through your hair; as you breathe the clean, fresh air.
From leaves falling and becoming fertilizer to raindrops bringing plants to life in the spring, the cycle of every season has something to enjoy. While delighting in all nature offers, we need to remember to respect and treasure the world around us. This sweet rhyming story follows the change in seasons and illustrates how we can all be stewards of the Earth.
Why I like this book:
Catchy rhyme and a great refrain for a read-aloud to preschoolers. This is a lovely celebration of not just the fun we have in nature but all that this planet offers us for our existence. There’s also a call to stewardship,
Love, respect, befriend, protect.
So the Earth gives more.
This is a terrific addition to your Earth day texts.
