The Rookie Read-About series is one of my favorites for non-fiction suitable for toddlers, and their treatment of Earth Day does not disappoint.With short, simple sentences and real-life photographs of children, this book is easy for small kids to follow.
The content is agreeable, too. There is no assigning of blame for environmental problems, just statements of that problems exist. There is no grand call for kids to save the world, just do a little something to help. Perhaps there is no grand vision, but there is plenty for a 2- or 3-year old to grasp.
There are several other holidays in this series, including Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s Day.
