Product description

From Publishers Weekly

The appealing, articulate little dinosaurs who have imparted sage advice in the Browns' Dinosaurs Alive and Well! and Dinosaurs Divorce here deliver their most critical message yet: natural resources, "gifts" to us from our planet, won't always be here if we waste or spoil them. Introducing "Slobosaurus"--a polluting, wasteful fellow--as a negative role model, the dinos instruct on the right way to live and keep our planet green. Using simple examples that will hit home, the authors show how we can save energy, reduce use of paper and plastic, find ways to reuse and recycle a wide variety of materials and "give something back" to the earth by making the outdoors clean and safe. The detailed illustrations' inherent humor, combined with a carefully distilled text, make this a forceful environmental guide for the youngest readers--and listeners. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- The Browns' sensible, cavorting dinosaurs are back again, this time regaling readers with some advice on how they can rescue our ailing Earth. In this latest foray into social issues, the authors present major environmental problems with such practical, easy, and entertaining solutions that children will be enthusiastic from the very beginning. The first page introduces Slobosaurus who is ``full of excuses for why he can't use less, use things again, and give something back to the earth.'' Succeeding pages show the boorish way he reacts by tossing his empty soda can on the ground, wasting water, using electricity unwisely or unnecessarily, etc. Plants, animals, and insects, too, are given a place in this environmental treatment. Each framed watercolor cartoon is bursting with activity showing the busy, happy creatures going about their daily routines with Slobosaurus sulking somewhere in the action. He is finally convinced by the hardworking dinosaur children that his help is indeed needed because . . . ``protecting our beautiful planet is a big job. Every one of us can help!'' This author/illustrator team knows precisely how to hit the mark for young readers, and their newest venture is no exception. --Mary Lou Budd, Milford South Elementary School, OH
