My boys were really into Earth Hour this past weekend. We chose to do ours on Sunday night instead of Saturday. We turned off all the lights and lit a couple candles in the living room. Secretly I enjoyed the togetherness turning off all the lights brings. And vowed we will be doing this more often.
Noah has been going around reminding everyone that April Twenty-Tooth is Earth Day . We’ve really been enjoying the new Barefoot Book of Earth Tales [$19.99] . Just like all Barefoot Books , it’s colorful and whimsical and engaging, full of folktales teaching about the different ways other cultures all around the world live within nature. Each story shares its own Eco-tip, like easy instructions for making a pinecone birdfeeder or how to grow your own tomatoes. I found myself sneaking in a story or two even when the kids weren’t around!
With each Earth Tales book sold during the month of April, Barefoot Books and Eco Libris are even planting a tree! You can also save 10% off all online purchases using code SCETALES . Expires April 30, 2009.
