I was introduced to a great book for children called 20 Easy Ways to Help Save the Earth by Coach Pedro Rita. It is a wonderful children’s book that teaches children about environmental awareness and some of the little things they can do to protect the Earth. The book is written in both English and Spanish – English on one side and Spanish on the other. I love that the ideas are simple and easy for children to do. Some of the ideas include turning off the water when you aren’t using it, planting trees or flowers to help the climate, or collecting rainwater to water your plants. This is a great book to own for yourself and your children!
“I made a team rule that we were not to leave any trash behind,” explains Coach Pedro, who noticed the soccer fields littered with trash. “It’s all about doing those little things that make a huge impact on the environment.” “We have found that children are very influential,” Coach Pedro says. “There’s a tendency for children to learn a behavior and in turn teach their family.” You can buy 20 Easy Ways to Help Save the Earth online for $12.10.
