Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22nd to raise awareness about environmental issues and promote conservation efforts. It’s a day to reflect on our impact on the planet and take actions to protect it, such as reducing our carbon footprint, conserving water, and recycling. This year we celebrate Earth Day with Nat Geo Kids Books. But, there are many ways to celebrate Earth Day, including participating in community events, planting trees, and advocating for environmental policies.
This year we are sharing books with kids about our natural world — and especially about what we can do to take care of it. It’s important all year long. But Earth Day (4/22!) is a truly unique opportunity to inspire young environmentalists and empower them to help the planet.
April is Here: Time To Celebrate Earth Day with Nat Geo Kids Books
From learning about protecting wild animals and natural habitats to reading about the impact of recycling, the science of trash, and our consumption of natural resources, these bright, beautiful, and engaging titles from Nat Geo Kids Books celebrate our planet and spotlight how each one of us can make a positive impact upon the earth — on Earth Day and every day!
Our Nat Geo Books list is quite a good one. Starting with:
From e-waste, to waste in space, to innovative trash technology, This Book Stinks! cleverly reveals the smelly (and fascinating). Scoop behind what happens to the 4 MILLION TONS OF TRASH the world generates each day and what we can do to un-stink our planet.
Readers can go “beyond the bin” and learn the cool science behind landfills. Why it’s so much better to toss a banana peel than a glass bottle, and why being a trash collector can be a risky business. Rather than being all “doom and gloom” about the subject, This Book Stinks! inspires young eco-warriors kids to take action by including tips and ideas about what they can do to make a difference at home, in their neighborhood, and in their community.
Another solid National Geographic Kids title,
