Sandy's Incredible Shrinking Footprint

"Sandy's Incredible Shrinking Footprint" by Femida Handy and Carole Carpenter

A little girl named Sandy visits her grandparents in the summertime. She visits the beach and discovers garbage left over from someone else's campfire. She also runs into a Garbage Lady who teaches her about her ecological footprint. 

The girl teaches her mom what she learned. Sandy, her mom and grandpa make a list of things they can do to reduce the size of their footprints. 

I like this book not only for the ideas it gives to help children understand how to be more environmentally conscious but because it teaches them about their ecological footprints. This is the first book I've come across that explains an ecological footprint.
