Protecting the Planet (Together in Our World) (Hardcover)
A picture book about the effects of littering, pollution, and global warming, and how we can care for the earth.
“We need to look after our planet, because our planet looks after us. If we all make small changes to protect the planet, we will see big results.” Protecting the Planet offers straightforward information on plastic waste, pollution, and global warming, and shares the small changes we can make to care for the earth.
Climate change caused by global warming is a common topic in the news, and this book helps kids address their environmental anxiety. Protecting the Planet explores the causes and effects of air pollution and littering and explains what global warming is. It also shares ways that kids and the adults in their lives can care for the earth, such as recycling, reusing items instead of throwing them away, and using less fuel and electricity.
“When our planet is clean and healthy, the people, plants, and animals on it are clean and healthy too.”
A glossary and additional resources can be found at the back of the book.
