Never too young to be educated. If you want your little tykes to be aware of the biggest challenge of the day---global warming---this book may be just the ticket for you; from treehugger (image from there)
What’s a writer and mom to do when she realizes that global warming is real and that kids and parents need to be aware of it? Write a book for kids and reach them both at the same time! That’s what Deborah Sherrell chose to do when she combined her love for the environment and love for kids in her recently published children's book, “Baby Lauren and Theodore”. To break the whole process of global warming down to a child’s-eye view the book explores the four seasons in a fun way while children learn the valuable role that trees play in the environment. And actually, the book stemmed from the fact that her daughter Lauren actually had a tree named Theodore, which helped her better understand and appreciate nature and the environment. Because as Sherrell points out, “...get them interested in loving nature early in life because global warming isn't going to go away and it's a huge problem, but we can all do something individually”. If you’d like to give it a shot, it’s available via her website and, of course, at amazon.com.
In other news, our friendly Senator James There-ain't-no-global-warming InHofe "is (from here):
"spending his last days in power attacking a children’s book on climate change, (Tore and the Town on Thin Ice.) The book, published by the United Nations in March, is “based on the theme of climate change and on what children can do to mitigate effects of climate change.” Inhofe’s staff breathlessly notes, “The book features colorful drawings and large text to appeal to young children.” Inhofe claims the book conveys inaccurate information about climate change to children.
If the little ones need further guidance, here's a list of books on the subject from Amazon. Happy nighttime reading!
