Whole World Earth Day Book & Activity

The whole world – it’s in our hands!  This book is a wonderful Earth day book and activity.
The world is ours to take care of, with all its wonderful diversity. So sing along, spread the word and celebrate the precious resources of our planet. This little eco-book includes a music CD and some great tips on what we can do to keep the earth healthy and happy.  {from the back of the book}

Connect with the whole wide, wonderful world with this green book that rejoices in the marvels of our environment. The catchy rhyme in this new take on a traditional spiritual begs to be sung aloud.

Included CD sung by acclaimed children’s performer Fred Penner.

Ages 3 to 7 years | Illustrated By: Christopher Corr | Sung By: Fred Penner | Hardcover w Music CD ($9.99)

I love celebrating Earth Day and of course I love books so I’m glad to be included in the Preschool Blogger Earth Day Blog Hop!  The book I have chosen is “Whole World”, a Barefoot Books book & Singalong CD.

As all Barefoot Books are, this book is beautifully illustrated with quality art, “celebrates diversity and helps children explore other cultures, our planet, and themselves, providing them with ways to follow their imaginations on extraordinary journeys, both inner and outer.”

This is a less commercialized rendering of Whole World but still the same story and familiar tune. The book itself is created with paper that is ancient-forest friendly.

As a child care provider, I appreciate resources that can be used in many ways. That’s what I love about this book. It’s a story and there’s a CD. They can be used together or separately.

The CD is beautifully produced with male/female voices as well as children’s. In the background you can hear water running, birds singing, and the sounds of the cities, etc.

To go along with the book and CD, I’ve created some pre-writing tracing and coloring pages that coordinate with the book.
