An original Earth Day story about children helping to save the Earth in little ways, such as reducing, reusing, recycling, conserving, and replanting. This story starts off talking about how the Earth has big problems, and wondering how a child can make a difference in solving those problems. Through an I can't ....... but I can..... format, the book strives to show children that the little things they do can make a big difference, and ends with the point that if every child does little things, they add up to big things!
