Loblolly, Loblolly, You’re So Tall by Mommy Moo Moo

Loblolly, Loblolly, You’re So Tall
by Mommy Moo Moo

 

I love the title of this book thats why I chose to review it. Loblolly is so fun to say! Who knew that it’s an actual real thing? I didn’t until I looked it up. How cool is that?

Loblolly is a tree that grows in the South. This adorbs book is a children’s adaptation of America the Beautiful. Everything rhymes (bonus in my opinion) with a lyrical feel that littles will love. Such a cute addition for your little green activist. Set it on the shelf next to The Lorax.

Super Cute!

Earth Day Storytime: The Lorax by Dr Seuss

Earth Day Storytime: The Lorax by Dr Seuss

If you’ve been looking for ways to celebrate Earth Day (which was Saturday) why not read The Lorax? What? Don’t have a copy readily available? Don’t worry, I’m reading it here for you. Enjoy!

Now, can you think of something to do to help protect the Earth? Maybe some recycling, or pick up trash, or plant a tree or water a plant? Use your imagination, it’s easy to be nice to the planet, after all, it’s where we keep our stuff! Where else would I keep my books if I didn’t keep them on Earth?

What did you do to celebrate Earth Day?

Oh how I LOVE this book!

Endangered by Eliot Shrefer

cuuute or what?

Here’s what they’re saying about Endangered:

The compelling tale of a girl who must save a group of bonobos–and herself–from a violent coup.

The Congo is a dangerous place, even for people who are trying to do good.

When one girl has to follow her mother to her sanctuary for bonobos, she’s not thrilled to be there. It’s her mother’s passion, and she’d rather have nothing to do with it. But when revolution breaks out and their sanctuary is attacked, she must rescue the bonobos and hide in the jungle. Together, they will fight to keep safe, to eat, and to survive.

Eliot Schrefer asks readers what safety means, how one sacrifices to help others, and what it means to be human in this new compelling adventure.

So. You have bonobos. You have biracial teenage surviving in the jungle alone, caring for these bonobos who trust her.  You have great writing.  You have Endangered!

Great book for the Diversity Reading Challenge. Get it? Good.
