This is a great video. Sesame Street pairs, classic and current clips on popular eco-friendly topics like conservation, recycling and re-using.
The main section of the video finds Elmo and his friends visiting a local park to try to catch a glimpse of a rare bird. While there, the group gets many earth friendly lessons from the park ranger. He teaches them to not litter, recycle their garbage, conserve our resources and appreciate nature.
Even though our family does many things to help reduce the waste on the this planet, I have found it hard to teach this to my oldest son. He doesn’t seem to quite get the concept of recycling and conserving.
The catchy songs and skits put together on this DVD have definitely been a great way for us to explain more in dept some of the things we need to do in order to keep our planet healthy. We especially found the bottle recycling song helpful in explaining the whole process as well as the video on paper recycling. The beauty of this video is that it takes you through each step visually so that kids can see the whole thing from start to finish.
I highly recommend this Sesame Street ‘Love The Earth’ to parents who are looking to educate their little ones in a fun and exciting way.
