Beginning Reader Review of How to Help the Earth by the Lorax by Tish Rabe

Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "The star of The Lorax by Dr. Seuss makes his Step into Reading debut in this rhymed reader that offers kids easy suggestions for going green! After explaining how the trash in a wastbasket ultimately ends up in a landfill or incinerator, the Lorax suggests realistic ways children can reduce waste, such as by carrying a lunch box, donating old clothes and toys, sharing magazines with friends, recycling cans and bottles, and using rechargeable batteries. He also explains how they can save energy around the home by turning off lights, taking shorter showers, donning sweaters to stay warm, and much, much more. All in all, this is a great introduction to helping the Earth and helping kids step into reading!"

My Review: This is a great level 3 beginning reader book, it is longer and has more complicated sentence structure and words, but it can also be enjoyed when read to a younger child. It had many great lessons on how to help the environment, and all simple things that kids can do or help remind adults to do. Throughout the book there are the wonderful rhymes for great reading pacing and the illustrations are all fun and bright. Munchkin rather enjoyed this book and it tied in well to our spring cleaning and the upcoming Earth Day.
Rating: We enjoyed this book and think it would be great for children starting to read entirely on their own or younger children still reading with help.  I give it a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
