Here are some books I read during Earth day celebrations: The EARTH book by Todd Parr is a good one, and a fellow male blogger had Todd in his classroom as a guest last month, I was so jealous. his blog is followingyourbliss.blogspot.com, he is so creative but don't expect blogger coments from him he never does it, he is not in the loop and to busy as a teacher for that, Laugh out loud but seriously his blog is great.
Ashley Bryan's book is very colorful and kids like to hear it again and again.
The Lorax is a best bet, by Dr. Seuss to talk about taking care of the earth.I just ordered a book called Alejandro's gift from paperback swap, it won't get her on time for my unit, but it's another book about the earth and taking care of it, so it's always a good time to read those. I am big on teaching and reading poetry I read The EARTH is painted green. He used blue and green paint to create his own earth on a circle piece of easel paper.
The magic school house always has fun and educational concepts.
