One thing I really need to start working on is teaching my sons how to care for the Earth. While my twins are still a little young to understand, my 4.5 year old certainly can. So we talk about recycling but really not much else, I just don't know where to begin or what to say. The folks over at FocusBloom have put together a great product that I think will definitely help with this!
"I Cherish Planet Earth is about appreciating and preserving nature and our planet. It is a celebration of Earth’s life and beauty. It is an inspiration to learn about and care for all life, from the tiniest flower to the greatest forest. It is a natural addition to any go-green program, at home, neighborhood, school, or other community."
Challenge and Fun, Inc. sent us an I Cherish Planet Earth to test out and my son and I have really enjoyed it. He loves matching games so as soon as we got it I had to get all of the pieces ready for him to play. This was a lot of fun for him and he did it over and over again. Then he would go through the book and match his game pieces up with the pictures on each page. I also read some of the book to him while he was matching, here is just a little excerpt that I like a lot:
"I can help protect you, Mother Earth. I can listen, read and learn, and make changes! Where there is pollution, I can give you what you need. I want your air to be clean and your water and soil to be healthy. Even the smallest can help clean up!"
I particularly love that last line because it is so true. The smallest child can clean up. The smallest changes we make can make a difference.
I Cherish Planet Earth is made in the U.S.A. and is recommended for ages 4+ up. It won the 2009 Dr. Toy Best Green Toy Award. This set would make a great gift for the child in your life or even for a teacher to use in his/her classroom.
