This week's Collections object is the book I Love Our Earth!
Written by Bill Martin, Jr. and Michael Sampson, this poetic book celebrates the picturesque beauty of people and places all over the world. Each page features one of the many photos taken by photographer Dan Lipow on his travels across five continents.
In 2007, I Love Our Earth received Please Touch Museum's Book Award for children 4 to 7! The book also fits perfectly into Please Touch Museum's "Earth Week" programming, which kicks off this Thursday, April 22 for Earth Day and continues all the way through Arbor Day on April 30 in hopes of promoting environmental awareness and stewardship.
Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! For more info about Hide and Seek of the Week, click here.
We're all about learning through play.
Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
