Earth Day Activity and Linky Party

Earth Day is right around the corner, and I want to share an activity I did several years ago before BOTH copies of my book were stolen borrowed permanently.

The infamous book is called Dear Children of the Earth by Schim Schimmel. 

Dear Children of the Earth begins a remarkable letter from Mother Earth asking for help from children everywhere. She writes to express her love for each and every child and asks for their love and appreciation in return. In her own words, and with all of her heart, Mother Earth enfolds children with love and entrusts them with her protection.

After discussing what we can do to help the Earth, the kids write a letter to Mother Earth telling what they will do to help make the Earth a better/cleaner place to live.  An illustration is added as well. 

While looking for a new copy of that book on Amazon, I found Children of the Earth...Remember and The FAMILY of EARTH, both by Schim Schimmel.

Children of the Earth...Remember is a tender lesson of sharing and protecting the Earth, enhanced with stunning artwork.  The core message of The FAMILY of EARTH is that "We all share the same earth."

Have an Earth Day idea or activity?  Join the Linky Party at Sunny Days!
