This One Has to be Perfect

We need a dramatic, double-page photo to use as the introductory spread in our upcoming Zootles issue, Bears. It's important that the photo show how closely young bear cubs need to stick to their mothers for safety. Which image here do you think better demonstrates that, and is at the same time the most appealing picture?

Earth Day Adventures

Zoobooks has got three suggestions for your Earth Day week:
1. Read Rachel Carson's "Preserving a Sense of Wonder" with your child.
2. Visit a National Park (they're free this week!)
3. Take your child on a wildlife adventure. This could be as simple as a close-up look at the bugs in your backyard, or as special as a trip to a zoo or nature preserve near you.

What is Earth Day Worth?

Plenty! Earth Day is this Thursday, April 22nd. Your friends at Zoobooks have got some ideas about how to get involved and empower your family to make a difference.

Everybody, no matter how small, can be a force for change. offers lots of practical and simple advice for kids to improve the air quality in their own neighborhoods.

Making ourselves heard is important, too. The World Wildlife Fund wants to make sure you can directly reach decision makers to let them know how you feel about specific environmental concerns. Letter writing can be a major influence!

Change can also come through fundraising. Audubon’s Pennies for the Planet program is a kid-friendly way to make every penny count. It's not too late to decorate a jar and start piling up pennies.

After all that hard work defending Mother Earth, we suggest kids treat themselves to a visit to the Environmental Kids Club. Their home page offers access to more tips and projects, but it’s also a fun place to hunt up earth-friendly puzzles and games. Enjoy!

Read your magazine. When you read an issue of Zoobooks, Zootles, or Zoobies magazine, it gets you thinking. Feel free to post ideas on our Facebook page or our blog. We want kids and their families to inspire each other all year long--not just on Earth Day.
