After watching the movie, The Lorax, we are on the mission to help save the planet Earth.
How to Help the Earth-by the Lorax (Step into Reading) is a supplement book we love reading after reading The Lorax book. The book has lots of tangible ways to show our "awful lot of care" for our planet.
This book, however, is not a Dr. Seuss book. It's a Step Into Reading Book for our avid reader kids. The Lorax gives some tips on how to save planet earth. Kylie can read this like a pro! And Kerim loves to listen.
The star of The Lorax by Dr. Seuss makes his Step into Reading debut in this rhymed reader that offers kids easy suggestions for going green! After explaining how the trash in a wastbasket ultimately ends up in a landfill or incinerator, the Lorax suggests realistic ways children can reduce waste, such as by carrying a lunch box, donating old clothes and toys, sharing magazines with friends, recycling cans and bottles, and using rechargeable batteries. He also explains how they can save energy around the home by turning off lights, taking shorter showers, donning sweaters to stay warm, and much, much more. All in all, this is a great introduction to helping the Earth and helping kids step into reading!
|acting to "think" what are the ways we really really need to do - with a gun pointed on her head!|
|This is what she came up with!|
1. Take a short shower.
2. Use the back of paper.
3. Use paper bag.
4. Throw trash in the bin! (she emphasized this with the exclamation point!)
5. Use old toys.
6. And plant a tree! (again with explanation point for emphasis!)
And that is how she serves the planet.
We just love it when the Step into Reading books have a point to make. Not only we practice our reading, but we embed some values into these tiny creatures of Earth. Awesome!
