Madeline Kaplan, author of "Planet Earth Gets Geen" on Radio Green Earth of South Florida

Madeline Kaplan, author of "Planet Earth Gets Green" gets a lot of national media attention for her great book. Last week she was interviewed by Radio Green Earth of South Florida, and had an interesting talk on her book, the collaboration with the Earth Day Network and about Eco-Libris that partners with her to plant a tree for every printed copy!

Radio Green Earth
is an interesting a weekly environmental radio show and their goal is "to educate listeners on environmental issues and share ways to reduce your environmental footprint and live more eco-responsible lifestyles." Definitely a good fit with "Planet Earth Goes Green".

This show is available at You're welcome to listen to the interview with Madeline Kaplan, which starts after 23 minutes from the beginning of the show.

More about the book: Planet Earth Gets Well by Madeline Kaplan, illustrated by Taillefer Long, addresses environmental concerns in a child-friendly format, based on the author’s awareness that future generations must be prepared to preserve their planet and its resources.

When Planet Earth gets the sniffles, Mother Nature challenges each of us to retract our gluttonous ways. She instructs the Planet Earth to take better care of himself which means all humans must make big changes about key issues like global warming, the melting of polar ice caps, deforestation and energy depletion. Once Planet Earth sneezes, Mother Nature listens and helps each and every one of us learn how to be good to our dear, old friend. This educational reader is wholly unique in the ways that matter-think globally, think green, and act accordingly. Reading level: Ages 4-8
