    1. Some of you know me as "The Trashy Librarian" because--despite what the rest of you are thinking--I love to collect and reuse all kinds of recycled goods for my library programs. It's thus not all that surprising that I LOVE THIS BOOK! This is a really important subject for children, and this book is all-around fabulous. It is visually appealing and cleverly designed, and the simple text is clear and inspiring. This is a must-read for all children pre-school through elementary school!

I thought some of the ten examples weren't the best one could have though of, but this book is VERY cleverly designed with interesting and exciting die-cuts, and it's all made of recycled material. The illustrations are cute and engaging and feature mixed media that give it a very real and practical feel. Even the typesetting is quite clever. But the best thing is probably that it's so simple that it can be easily be shared with preschoolers or even toddlers.

    4. What a well-conceived and fabulously executed picture book nonfiction for the very young set. (I do wonder about some of the "wasted" paper that got cut away to make those flip-the-flap pages) The writing is aptly simplistic with a factual sentence explaining why behind each of the 10 things that anyone can do to "save the world." Excellent offering on a hot and trendy (and very important) topic.

    18. Turning off lights when you leave the room and the faucet when brushing, feeding birds in winter, using both sides of the paper, and planting seeds are among the suggestions given in this simple but striking ecology book for kids. Paintings are large and blocky with the margins of several pages cut away to match the borders of different objects (a tree, a sink, a light bulb's rays, and more). The 10 suggestions are printed in an extra-large font ("I can plant seeds and help them grow") with an i [...]

    19. This book is really cute. It was a book about 10 simple things anyone can do to help the world. Even though the book focused on simple reminders that we all know like, turn your lights off when you leave the room and turn the water off after you brush your teeth, it gives you a very specif reason why you should do it. For example, the book says if you turn the water off when you are brushing your teeth you can save 18 glasses of water. This book touched on very important issues but made the sujb [...]

    20. Hooray for non-fiction for the earliest learners! This book has fun flaps to lift, bright colors, and best of all, short sentences about really simple, understandable, important ideas, like "I use both sides of a piece of paper" or "I remember to turn off the light when I leave a room." Each idea has an added, easy explanation like "Turning off lights and using more efficient lightbulbs saves valuable energy" but these are worked into the art as an extra "here's why" for the grown-ups or for inq [...]

    21. I would use this book specifically in the beginning of the school year to stress "taking care of our classroom-world." We would discuss engaging in environmentally friendly behavior. I would keep it in the science area but bring it out during lessons dealing with recycling. We could have a large group discussion about how they are implementing the practices listed in the book at home and as a fun group activity, we could wear gloves and go for a walk and pick up trash items from our street or ba [...]

    22. I really loved this book by Melanie Walsh. I do appreciate books with story plots but I also find great value in children's book that teaches a child something innovative and important. This story does a brilliant job discussing the importance of keeping the world unpolluted and in good health. This book has fun and cute pictures that are exiting to flip over and enjoy. I think with the boring meaning of the book the author did a ideal job making the message interesting and enjoyable for childre [...]

    23. This is a great interactive book for young children to learn some simple things they can do to improve the world. Along with saying what the individual person can do it gives an explanation as to what it would do for the environment. I also think that writing the book in first person would help children understand it better and relate it to their own life. It would be a good book to read to young children on Earth Day to make them understand what they can do to improve the world.

    24. This book is about helping your environment and includes simple ways to do this. Some of these include unplugging electronics, not using as much water, and recycling. Each page has different flaps, which makes it entertaining to the kids and it is easy to read. It is a helpful book to read to kids so they can learn to help the environment. I would read this book along with a science lesson about the environment and talk about why it is important.

    29. 10 Things I Can Do To Help My World:I completely loved this book. I feel like you can do some many things with it in your classroom.

    30. This book not only shares neat ideas to help the world but the pages have areas you have to lift up to see! I would use this in the classroom and maybe after reading this book create a classroom list of things we could do to help our world, in the classroom and out. So things like turning off the water after washing your hands, using only one paper towel and things like that.
