Arthur Turns Green by Marc Brown

Arthur Turns Green

Overview from Barnes and Noble:

Celebrated author/illustrator Marc Brown revisits his beloved bestselling character in the first new Arthur picture book in almost ten years!
Arthur comes home from school and begins sneaking around the house, taking notes and talking about a Big Green Machine. D.W. is suspicious of her brother's weird behavior, but when Arthur shows up late for dinner with green hands, she really gets the creeps! But it turns house Arthur is making a poster listing all the ways to save energy at home--and go green!
Just in time for Earth Day, this heartwarming story will be printed on recycled paper with soy based ink.
My thoughts:
I love Arthur!  When  I first started taking classes in college to become a teacher I recall coming across one of his books and using it when I was student teaching.  I read books regularly to my students and even wrote in to join his club.  You got a form letter back from the author and some reproducibles.  I even had two stuffed Arthur's!  I was excited to come across a new book at the library last week and my youngest has enjoyed reading it over and over again.
Arthur and his class are exploring ways they can make a difference to the planet and work towards some of the ideals for Earth Day.  Turning off lights, shorter showers, recycling, reusing, unplugging chargers when done and more are all simple things that children can help with and participate by doing.  I loved the way the story unfolded and think this will be a great read, especially when Earth Day rolls around this spring.
