The appealing, articulate little dinosaurs who have imparted sage advice in the Browns' Dinosaurs Alive and Well! and Dinosaurs Divorce here deliver their most critical message yet: natural resources, ``gifts'' to us from our planet, won't always be here if we waste or spoil them. Introducing ``Slobosaurus''--a polluting, wasteful fellow--as a negative role model, the dinos instruct on the right way to live and keep our planet green. Using simple examples that will hit home, the authors show how we can save energy, reduce use of paper and plastic, find ways to reuse and recycle a wide variety of materials and ``give something back'' to the earth by making the outdoors clean and safe. The detailed illustrations' inherent humor, combined with a carefully distilled text, make this a forceful environmental guide for the youngest readers--and listeners. Ages 4-8. (Apr.)
