April has been a very exciting month for Little Pickle Press. From giveaways with Carrots Are Orange to readings at Linden Tree Books, we have been finding new and creative ways to celebrate Earth Month. Today, we welcome two children, Mark and Nick, to highlight what it means to celebrate Earth Month.
How did you celebrate Earth Day this year?
Mark (8 years old): “At school. We learned about the water and about ways that we can help the planet and stuff. And yeah, lots of stuff.”
Nick (6 years old): “We learned about it at school.”
Can you tell me the importance of Earth Day?
Mark: “Because it’s important to look around and know the things that you can do. Because, like, there are things that you don’t even know. But the thing is, you don’t realize most of the time that we have to be really careful if we want to live on this planet.”
Nick: “Earth Day we learned about being in the garden, and how you can make different things grow. Earth Day is about growing things, so that we have different things to eat.”
What are a few ways that you can help to protect planet Earth?
Mark: “You can wash your hands with not that much water, and you can also, like, not use paper plates when you get pizza…”
Nick: “Watch out for the animals.”
What is your favorite outdoor activity? When do you get to spend time outside with nature?
Mark: “I’m outside almost every day because I play soccer and ride my bike. Sometimes, I’m outside in the morning too because I walk to school with my friends.”
Nick: “When it’s nice out, I can play outside with my sister and stuff.”
What do you think is the most important thing about Earth Day/Month?
Mark: “Remembering that there are things you can do to help the way the world is, and doing them.”
Nick: “Being happy that you live here.”
