Lots of insects and animals said things to him when he was first born. They all wanted to play with him. They played fun things like hide and seek. That had to be pretty hard for a wave to hide I think! One day, a truck came and sprayed stuff. After it sprayed, the turtles and frogs didn’t play anymore and the dragonflies disappeared. A duck told him that the spray was to keep bugs out of the crops, but there was no food for the frogs and other animals to eat now because of it. The duck says that he hopes their kids do it differently and learn different things to help save the Earth. Then the wave tries to find kids to teach this to.
The book tells about how it is important to learn how things you do can hurt the ponds and the Earth. It teaches you to do things differently.
My favorite part of the book is the end where the wave teaches the kids. “The Little Wave: Adventures in Earthly Care, Part One” by Stephen Lamoreaux is a good book to teach everyone how to be good to the Earth.
