Item description for Theo And the Giant Plastic Ball (Tunza Environmental Series for Children)...
"Theo and the Giant Plastic Ball" is part of the "Tunza Environmental Series for Children", sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). 'Tunza' means 'to treat with care or affection' in Swahilli. UNEP hopes to inspire caring for the Earth through creative literature that sparks the interest and awareness of children, their parents and teachers. The story tells of Theo and his quest to improve at football by making a ball out of discarded plastic bags. This then leads to clearing up his local environment and the realisation that by the community working together they could maintain a cleaner, more healthy environment.

Start the Discussion About Excessive Plastic Bags! Sep 11, 2008
I bought this book and 2 others from the UN bookstore in NYC. It is a terrific read-a-loud and really got my mixed age class (1st-5th grade) talking and thinking about plastic bag use. They even started looking for them when we walked to the park. This book does mention churches without mentioning other holy places, but we had a short discussion to include them after the story. I highly recommend this book to teachers and parents to help get the message out to their children about environmental concerns.
