April Twenty-Tooth

March 31st, 2009 - By Stephanie Precourt

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.

Win! I have a copy of The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales to give away. To enter, please leave a comment letting me know your favorite Barefoot Book OR what you are doing to conserve OR post about this giveaway on your blog or twitter. Just one of those will do!

I’ll choose one winner at random from the comments after 11:59 PM April 10. Open to US residents only.

And be sure to mark down April Twenty-Tooth, I mean, April Twenty-Second, and celebrate Earth Day with your family. Lights on or off- just do it together!
