What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by writing or reading a story about nature. The options are many, e.g. geology, (rocks), trees, water cycle, horticulture (plants), zoology (animals), entomology (insects), arachnology (spiders-eeew!), and many more. How about the forces of nature that cause erosion? I for one love erosion by the wind for the crazy shapes it creates in hoodoos! Although, I’ve hiked on many river trails that have perfectly circular pots carved out of the rock walls by erosion through the force and movement of the river water. Mother Nature is truly a force to be reckoned with!
One theme in my first children’s book is the water cycle. Water sustains life. Without it, we don’t have life here on earth. Water wisely, reuse water when able, put out rain barrels or another water catchment system, take shorter showers or take a bath, turn off the water while brushing your teeth or shaving, and cleaning vegetables, check your faucets, toilets and showers for leaks, run full loads in the dishwasher and laundry washing machine, use mulch around plants and trees (not right next to the trunk), don’t run the hose while washing your car, use a broom to sweep steps and sidewalks instead of the hose, etc. For more ideas on how to conserve our precious water, go to http://www.projectwater.info/index.html. Minnesota and California are participants in this project.
