Earth Day: An Alphabet Book
By Gary Kowalski
"Earth Day: An Alphabet Book is a children's alphabet story that celebrates the immense variety of flora and fauna alive on earth from apricots and alligators to zucchini and zebras. Beautifully illustrated by spare, graceful paintings of creature and plant, each page presents one or two letters of the alphabet and gives examples from nature of words beginning with that letter. A tale of wonder unfolds, ending with simple gratitude for the existence of earth and its immense variety of life. Written by a Unitarian-Universalist minister, "Earth Day" will educate and appeal to the preschool audience."-- Midwest Book Review
The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales
By Dawn Casey with illustrations by Anne Wilson
“Seven different areas of the earth—Australia, Nigeria, the American Southwest, Bali, Kazakhstan, India and Wales—are represented through folktales celebrating the natural world and the interdependence of living things. An introduction to each tale describes the cultures and beliefs of the peoples, and an ecological activity follows each story. A welcome addition to storytelling collections as well as a good choice for children to enjoy by themselves. Sources for the tales are well documented in an annotated bibliography."--Kirkus Review
