"It's All Shiny and There's No Pollution": "Barbapapa's Ark," Environmental Influences
Lowe, Virginia
Children's Literature in Education, v45 n3 p225-238 Sep 2013
The environmental picture book "Barbapapa's Ark" was published in 1974. I was keeping a parent-observer record of my two children at the time. The book had a strong influence on them from ages three to six, moving them to query pollution and hunting, in book and environment, and as adults, becoming committed activists for the environment. Young children are routinely underestimated. Learning about the environment and conservation can begin well before formal education.
