Reading “Living Green” made me want to pick up trash outside so we don’t hurt people, animals or fish. We should try to stop throwing litter on the ground because it’s where the animals live and we don’t want to mess up their home.
Thurman begins to stop the humans from littering but ends up getting stuck because of the trash. School kids on a field trip rescue Thurman. Thurman is happy because he knows there’s hope for a cleaner world, thanks to the kids.
The lesson the school kids learn and help us learn is the four R’s – rethink, reduce, reuse, recycle. I liked that I learned something from the book.
After I read “Living Green,” I went to the store with my family and found there was trash in the parking lot. I picked it up for Thurman. Reading about Thurman’s adventure made me want to help the Earth.
