One of my favorite books, in the collection, A BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR MOTHER EARTH, was inspired by my granddaughter Zoe when she was five years old. She and her brother and I actually did make birthday mud cakes for Mother Earth and decorated them with twigs, leaves, small flowers and other things from the yard. Then we put a candle on our cake and sang happy birthday to thank "Mother Earth" for all that she has given us. The resulting book was chosen as the top children's book for 2 to 6 year olds a year later by an international book awarding agency out of Toronto, Canada.
I have enjoyed using it to teach at schools, Sunday schools and related childhood functions. All the books in the collection have games and activities for children to enjoy as well as pages of parental notes to work with. Shown below are photos from one of the earth birthday parties that I have hosted. So much fun with a lasting earth garden to keep!
If you have read the book, thank you for helping to make it an Amazon #1 best seller; if not I invite you to join Lae Lae and her friends as they celebrate A Birthday Party for Mother Earth!
