Celebrate Earth Day -Children's Books



Tomorrow April 22nd will be Earth Day. This is the perfect time to think about planet earth, our home, and what we can do protect it. 

For Earth Day 2016, we’re #Rooting4Trees! Planting trees is one of the easiest ways to fight climate change.

Here are a few children’s books that have vivid illustrations and simple texts to explain some of the complexities of environmental issues. They’re presented in an easy-to-understand way and provide children with role models who encourage them to plant trees and protect our forests.
