A First Look At: Taking Care of Nature: This is our Planet
Illustrated by Claire Keay
This reassuring picture book makes children aware of how unique our planet is and why we need to look after it.
This book is written from the perspective that we take care of the things we care about and that the rules for taking care of the environment are little different from the rules of everyday living and getting along with others. 'What about you?' questions throughout are useful prompts for understanding things from your child's point of view.
Charmingly clear illustrations give readers immediate access to complex situations and feelings
Notes for parents and teachers at the back of the book provide valuable advice for how to share this book with your child or class.
