I am so pleased to share a fun giveaway with you today! Just in time for Earth Day and Screen Free Week, we’ve been given a copy of newly re-released book Megan Halsey‘s newly re-released book 3 Panda’s Planting.
This giveaway is now closed. Thank you!
This book is a new addition to our Earth Day book basket and a happy, cheerfully illustrated lesson for preschool through early elementary kids that shows conservation in action.
All three of my kids, from age two to age nine, have been enjoying this fun book and, as a parent, I’ve been enjoying that it helps broach a serious topic in a lighthearted way.
My oldest and I have had some great discussions about what being a good steward of our planet means and even the two and four year olds are picking up on the book’s simple message about caring for the earth.
From the 3 Pandas Planting website:
“Published by Marshall Cavendish, on recycled paper, 3 Pandas Planting is a fun, earth-loving and user-friendly book for all ages!
Carpooling crocodiles, litter-collecting condors, newspaper-bundling bears, and other earth-friendly animals show how small, everyday actions can make a BIG difference in taking care of the earth. Originally published by Bradbury Press in 1994, this new paperback edition contains updated backmatter with environmental/recycling tips. Perfect for Earth Day and everyday, fun web-links are included for children and parents to learn more about doing good things for the earth.”
Two lucky Simple Kids readers are each going to win a copy of 3 Panda’s Planting! Megan has even generously offered to inscribe the winners’ copies!
- Leave a comment on this post telling me how you and your kids are taking care of the earth.
This giveaway will end at midnight EST Saturday April 23, 2011. Good luck! This giveaway is now closed. Thank you!
If you visit the 3 Panda’s Planting website, Megan has some coloring pages and activities waiting for you and your kids there.
Just in time to help with the mid-week Screen Free blues, right?
