Friday Finds

Happy Earth Day, everyone!

Several books have been published recently (and not so recently) about our Earth and the destructive, planet-destroying patterns we humans have created. While I love scare tactics as much as the next person (although I do believe most of what is being discussed in those books), I’ve decided to focus on the positive.

We can all make a difference, if we just lend a hand! Here’s a few books I recommend:

The Lorax by Dr. Suess. Everyone’s favorite. I loved reading this book as a child, but I loved reading it to my child even more!

Earth (The Book) by Jon Stewart. If we’re all gonna go down in a ball of flames, we might as well go out laughing!

Walden by Henry David Thoreau. An instant classic when published in 1854, this is a must read for anyone who cares about the planet. As relevant today as it was back then!


  1. What perfect choices for Earth Day! You're right - how can you not love The Lorax???!!! And John Stewart? Luv him. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Have a great weekend. Ellen :-)


I'd love to know what you're thinking!
