Short Story About Earth Day

Title: The River Clean-Up Crew

In a cozy town by the river, Sammy the Squirrel, Daisy the Deer, Benny the Bunny, and Tommy the Turtle were best friends. One day, they found their river filled with trash. Determined to clean it up, they formed the River Clean-Up Crew.

They grabbed bags and gloves, working together to pick up trash along the riverbank. Benny and Tommy dove into the water, while Sammy and Daisy collected trash on land.

With songs and laughter, they worked tirelessly until the river sparkled again. Proud of their hard work, they shared a picnic by the river and promised to always care for their home.

From then on, they celebrated Earth Day together, knowing that friendship and teamwork could make a big difference in their world.

But the story doesn’t end there! To celebrate their hard work and the spirit of Earth Day, we’re offering a free printable worksheet for kids. This worksheet includes the story of “The River Clean-Up Crew,” and children are invited to use their creativity to make their own illustrations based on the story.
