Carmin Cares is an award winning children's book by Karen Kilpatrick about an adorable little girl who makes a big difference.

Carmin loves to spend time at the park with her dog Peanut. They "play with bubbles, swing on swings, throw some balls, look at things..." But, today Carmin discovers trash all over her beautiful park. The disgusting mess makes Carmin mad and her and Peanut head home to come up with a plan. Will Carmin figure out how to keep the park clean?

I am absolutely in love with Car

Karen Kilpatrick has written a charming, thoughtful and endearing children’s book brilliantly illustrated by An-Lon Chen.

Carmin is off to the park with her dog Peanut to play. She is excited and happy to be enjoying the day until she comes off the slide and steps in a pile of trash and gets gum on her shoe. This makes her very unhappy and she wants to do something to take care of the situation. She goes home with a plan and happily returns to the park with what she believes will be a solution to
My daughter picked this book for me to read to her. She stayed engaged with it from beginning to end, and also wanted to read it again.

Pros: Simple illustrations help highlight a story about caring for our world.

Note: The book has / vocabulary that may be too mature for a traditional board book audience. A story about trying to get people to keep a park clean seems to be a difficult message for toddlers to understand.
