Happy Earth Day!!!
Today after school, my family and I are going to go for a walk on our road and clean up all the litter along the sides. How are you spending Earth Day?
I know every time I think of Earth Day, I think of ZOMBIES! Okay, not really, but it seems that zombies, vampires and other monsters are very popular lately and Julia Dweck wrote a very clever book that combines zombies and caring for the Earth that is sure to get kid’s interest!

Have you ever wondered what Zombies did at night? (Just F.Y.I. – I don’t. I don’t think about Zombies and what they do. Especially at night.) Would you think of them sneaking into your house to shut off a dripping faucet? Or battling Energy Vampires in your home? Planting trees? Picking up trash? Apparently Zombies are very Eco-friendly because they do all this – and more!
I am not a fan of Zombies, Vampires, Werewolves, etc. I actually stay away from books and movies with monsters in them (unless it’s like Abbott and Costello meet the Mummy). I also do know a lot of kid/adults are really into monsters and when I heard about Ms. Dweck’s book I was wondering how you combine Zombies and a green message so I thought I’d give it a try. After reading the book, I think kids will really love this book and adults will love the message! Why? Because the whole idea of Zombies caring for the Earth is hilarious! I also love the illustrations. They really add to the story. I like that the author mixes a popular culture thing (Zombies) with a message about caring for the Earth! I think kids 6+ would really love this book!
