When I was in the fourth grade, my elementary school put on a "Save the Trees" program. Us kids wrote the program, designed it, planned it, and put it on for our parents. I really got into it. One boy's dad made bumper stickers, and I went out to my parents' van, cleaned it off, and put that sticker on. I really cared about recycling and conserving water and all that stuff.
For about a month, anyway.
Years later, in college, I took an Environmental Biology class, and once again became interested in doing something for the environment. There are little steps we can all take every day, and they make big differences.
But once again, when my class ended, so did my enthusiasm.
So what can we do to create that enthusiasm in children, and make it last?
The author Sabbithry Persad just might have the answer.
You can find out more about the book at Garbology Kids, or you can just buy the book from Amazon.

I mean, we all agree our world is important, right? And we want to join in on making it an enduring place. But sometimes it can seem so daunting just to get started. This will help. What a great way to mold the minds of future caretakers of planet Earth.
