Earth Day and Earthworms

Emmy had been planning her Earth Day for months. She had a specific plan in mind. We were going to don gardening gloves and walk around the neighborhood, picking up trash.

Fortunately for us, the weather was sunny. It was very windy and chilly, but that didn’t stop us! I carried a bag for trash, and Emmy carried a bag for recyclables. She was very proud of all the things we collected to help clean the Earth!

Diary of a WormDiary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin

I have been waiting for Earth Day to share this book with you! This cute book is a fictional account of a worm’s life, with some facts about earthworms mixed in. This little boy worm loves scaring his big sister, needs reminders not to eat his homework, and is taught that it is a worm’s job to take care of the earth. It’s a great book to read to kids, especially in the spring. We have had several rain showers that have brought the worms out onto the sidewalk, and the girls are especially mindful of not stepping on the worms!

Did you remember that Earth Day is April 22? Never mind if you didn’t…after all, every day is Earth Day!

  1. Earth's crust is divided into several rigid segments, or tectonic plates, that migrate across the surface over periods of many millions of years. About 71% of the surface is covered by salt water oceans, with the remainder consisting of continents and islands which together have many lakes and other sources of water that contribute to the hydrosphere.

    I'm going to have to check out that book, I'm sure that Adaline would love it. I'd really like to get her involved in a clean up next year when she's a little older.

    Hey, stopping by after you came through my Blog Frog community. I love the idea of celebrating Earth Day and then letting them know that these are the types of things we should do on a daily basis! I love the book Diary of a Worm as well! Great choice!

    What a good idea! Last year I wanted to get in on the whole "Clean up the Netherlands" day. Found out they only organised it in the next town. Which would have taken me over two hours to reach! This year I was out of town and country. I do make sure to never throw anything on the street though and take my rubbish home with me!
