Rhyming text and vibrant illustrations make this a perfect read for Earth Day, reminding young readers of the importance of safeguarding the planet. Completing the message, Barefoot Books prints only with vegetable-based ink and uses pulp from sustainable sources. (Barefoot Books, $12.23) Where to Buy
