Earth Day is an annual event celebrated in almost 200 countries worldwide. It began in 1970 in March to mark the earth’s equinox, but was quickly moved to April, and was instituted to focus on environmental issues.

There are several nonfiction picture books which explain the background and celebration.  But there are more fiction picture books which tell stories of characters celebrating Earth Day.  Many of these are series characters children know well and identify with as one of them.  Below are some examples of these characters celebrating Earth Day.
