Booklist - 03/01/2022 Set down that single-use water bottle and listen up, because your forever-buddy Earth has some straight talk about the environmental harms of plastics. Plastic is pretty incredible, but Earth reveals that it has landed in oceans, forests, mountains, and deserts, where it negatively impacts animals. “Some of them have tried eating it. Others have gotten tangled up in it. All of them are sick of it.” Earth levels with “little humans” and offers us suggestions, including using metal straws, reusable totes, and refillable water bottles in order “to use less pesky plastic.” Pencil sketches on paper with digital coloring vary in layout and perspective and feature a diverse array of slightly exaggerated people, a personified Moon, and our wide-eyed and chummy protagonist. Back matter includes additional facts about plastics, although no citations or source material. This second book from the team behind a popular podcast series brings warmth and humor to STEM content and invites approachable environmental action by young readers who may share an invigorated sense of loyalty to their pleading pal Earth. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
