The fifth book in the Rhyme, Laugh and Learn Series shares a thoughtful and highly creative response to the conservation issues that we face as a planet today, and shows us how we can take action

With a clever nod to Dicken's Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come plus Uncle Sam's call to action, the story is a great opportunity for children, families, and educators to discuss what part they can play to take care of our environment. With the trademark rhyming pattern of the series, the book takes us forward in time to a vision of a scorched, dry, lifeless earth where the gods of the sky, the seas, and the earth are searching desperately for a means to save the planet. But is it too late? After meeting an old friend, they summon all their powers to send him back to the current day to meet that friend as a boy. There, the boy warns adults and children alike, through social media and other means, about what they need to do in their daily lives so that collectively they can stop the devastation. Complete with activities and action steps, this book cleverly teaches in both the home and classroom.
