School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 4-Written to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas," this song celebrates Earth Day and 12 different creatures that inhabit the planet. The lyrics begin, "On the first Earth Day Birthday the wide world gave to me- A bald eagle in the sky." Other species spotlighted include grizzlies, panthers, salmon, fawns, and owls. The vibrant double-page paintings printed on glossy paper depict the animals in their native habitats and are large enough to be seen if shared with a group. One caveat: the activity described in the verses does not always match what appears in the pictures. For instance, the illustration for "Eleven seals a-swimming" shows only two seals in water while the remaining nine rest nearby on the ice. The concluding pages provide a brief history of Earth Day, ideas for gifts that children could give the Earth (e.g., plant a tree), and the lyrics and music. With its realistic artwork, this attractive package would make an appealing sing-along supplement to a unit or storytime on Earth Day.-Lynn K.
