Many little children like to “help” to make the bed, do the dishes, and cook the dinner – with varying degrees of success. When they read this book young children will discover that there is something other than housework that they can help – they can help save our planet. They are not too little to pick up trash, to turn off lights, to use a lunchbox for their lunches, and to put recyclables in the correct bin. They are not too little to make a difference.

With delightful collage illustrations, flaps to lift, and a simply conveyed message that will empower little children, this is a perfect book for children who want to do their part to save our world.
