TROUBLE ON EARTH DAY
With Earth Day approaching on April 22nd it's time to focus on educating our children about conservation. Trouble on Earth Day would be a great resource for this purpose and a super addition to any school or home library.
Shelby the squirrel shares what she learned in school about conservation with her parents. Together they discover many things around their house that can be recycled.
