Earth Week 2010!

Earth Week 2010 started with the Grandin Village Earth Day 2010 Celebration, then on to visiting 6 schools and 2 libraries. I took the week off from my real job and jumped in feet first. I found the kids loved Johnny Green and the Little Green Man and sorting trash, as well as adults! I learned a big lesson during the week - -our children are being well educated about recycling already in our schools! We all have this huge responsibility and it's so exciting and rewarding to know that it is working! Mother Earth - watch out!
Grandin Village, reading...
....and sorting trash.
North Carolina School - K - 2nd graders.
Rocky Mount Elementary School, Rocky Mount, VA. All cozied up reading Johnny Green.
One school had two assemblies, K - 2nd and 3rd - 5th graders. They colored pledge forms prior to the assemblies and two lucky winners won signed copies of
Johnny Green and the Little Green Man!
Here's one happy winner!
By the end of the week it was so nice to relax at The General Store here at home. I was fortunate to chill with Tad Parker, author of Jerry McAllister, Both Johnny Green and the Little Green Man, and book 1 & 2 of Jerry McAllister can be found there.
Thank you for having us in your schools and other events in the area! What a great week! Looking forward to 2011 Earth Week!
