In this book, kids discover that all energy on Earth comes either directly or indirectly from the Sun. They also learn the value of finding sources of renewable energy.
The brightly illustrated Taking Care of Your Planet books were written and designed to help make young children aware that Earth's resources are limited and precious, and must be used with care. Each book tells a story that centers around children and their parents, as together they learn the value of conserving Earth's natural resources to help keep the planet green. Following each story, a four-page section suggests children's activities that relate to the book's central theme. A final two-page spread offers a guide for parents, with suggestions on how to use the concepts in the book to keep children aware of environmental issues. Color illustrations on every page.
