From The Author

I am both a mom and a former kid. As a mom, I care about the Earth that my child and future generations of children call home. We grownups have a big responsibility to clean up the environment and figure out a better plan for the future of our planet. But as a former kid, I also know that grownups often need help from kids and this messy planet thing is a BIG job.

I wrote this book because if I were still a kid and somebody told me that I should recycle and use less energy because it's good for the planet, I'd want to ask them how it's good for the planet and why it's so important.

Recycling and using less energy are great ways to make our Earth cleaner and healthier, but "just because" isn't always enough to help us start forming a new habit or making a change.

Taking care of our Earth is like taking care of our bodies and our homes. Our daily habits affect the health of everything close to us. Even though it may be easier to do less or do nothing at all, we benefit from the big and small efforts of every person who helps. That's why it's important to decide right now to start protecting our Earth in as many ways as we can.

Imagine a world where everyone understands that caring for our Earth isn't just a nice idea, but a necessity. I hope this book helps you learn about the hows and whys of our challenges and inspires you to make a difference, because WE ALL CAN!
