planet-earth-gets-well-book-cover-polar-bears-cub-happy-planet-bird-butterfly-sun-illustration-madeline-kaplan-author-image.jpg The Earth is sneezing and running a fever. This can’t be good! Read all about it in Madeline Kaplan’s children’s book Planet Earth Gets Well, a tale about Planet Earth and all the reasons why he isn’t feeling well. The book is a great tool to teach young children about what makes the Earth sick (like pollution) and how we can all make the Earth feel better – drive less often, recycle, carpool, use less paper and plastic. Nobody likes to be sick especially children, who will relate easily to this metaphor. By the end of the story, kids will be asking how they can help keep the Earth healthy. A teachable moment guaranteed!
