A colorful discussion of conservation that will entertain and educate any child!My Earth, My Home gently guides young readers through a conversation that illuminates the concept of global connection and environmental cause and effect.

With its Messy Planet Action Plan, My Earth, My Home encourages children to take charge and start saving the planet in simple and effective ways. Called "the perfect children's introduction to environmental issues" by Fred Krupp, president of the Environmental Defense Fund, this book encourages maturity, ownership, and problem-solving discussion among kids and their parents, teachers, or caregivers. It is a must for every school and family library.
