Celebrate Earth Day with the UUA Bookstore
As Unitarian Universalists, we may not need to set aside a special day to honor the interconnected web of life around us. But Earth Day gives each of us a chance to participate in celebrations going on within and beyond our UU community and share our values with others. Your UUA Bookstore has wonderful multigenerational resources to help you celebrate Earth Day in your community.
Children and adults will delight in Earth Day, a poem of gratitude by Gary Kowalski that celebrates the stunning variety of life on earth. From apricots to groundhogs to junebugs, from quahogs to zinnias, zucchini and zebras, plants and animals come alive with Rocco Baviera's bright and imaginative illustrations.
In alphabetical order, the wonders of nature leap from the page, reminding readers that every day is a reason to give thanks and that miracles are as simple as ABC. Appropriate for ages 3 and up. Purchase today.
The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales is written by Dawn Casey and beautifully illustrated by Anne Wilson. In this popular anthology, now in paperback, learn how different cultures around the world set out to live in harmony with the natural world.
The seven folk tales included here are each followed by a hands-on activity that promotes green living and reinforces the eco-messages of the stories. The book is a winner of the Gold Nautilus Book Award and the American Folklore Society Aesop Accolade. Purchase today.
