I love "Our Tree Named Steve" by Alan Zweibel - it would fit with an Earth/nature type of theme.

Books I suggest trying:
Round Like a Ball by Lisa Campbell Ernst
It's Earth Day by Mercer Mayer
Our Big Home by Linda Glaser
The Earth and I by Frank Asch

I haven't done this theme yet, but those are authors I've used before and would probably try them
first.

I use these in an Earth Day storytime. Not really about the Earth, but do give an ecology message.

Hey, Little Ant - Hoose

Clifford's Spring Clean-up - Bridwell

River - Atwell

This book is a craft book, but I especially like the 'earth necklace'. It's called 'Every Day Is Earth
Day, by Kathy Ross.

One of my coworkers just did a similar program and these were the titles that she read:

Michael Recycle by Ellie Bethel
A Pig Tale by Olivia Newton-John
The Trouble With Dragons by Debi Gliori

Plus, a personal favorite of mine is always, The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.

I also come across this book recently in our collection and it was cute.
It's called Earth Day Birthday by Pattie Schnetzler and it is patterned off the "12 Days of
Christmas".

We just received a new book that we plan on using for Earth Day. It's called 10 Things I Can Do
to Help My World by Melanie Walsh. It's written in simple terms.
