On April 22, we celebrate Earth Day. In honor of Earth Day, meet Layla, the heroine of The Adventures of the Earth Saver Girl. She has special super powers which she uses to protect the earth. Layla is the creation of Brooklyn, a young honor student from Atlanta. She decided to write The Adventures of the Earth Saver Girl because she “thought it would be a good way for kids her age to learn about the importance of protecting our Earth." To learn more about Layla, Brooklyn, and becoming an environmentalist visit http://www.earthsavergirl.com/

Time to start moving! "Move Your Body" can be a great work out video for children and families as well as schools. Beyonce has lent her star power to Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign, and created "Move Your Body," a dance workout video set to the tune of her hit song "Get Me Bodied." Beyonce's official "Move Your Body" video airs May 3 and will be played at a "dance-in" at middle schools across the country. Let's Move! has been the main project of Michelle Obama to encourage and inspire families to fight childhood obesity. The statistics show that African American families are suffering from increasingly high levels of stress related diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure and heart problems. Encouraging our children to exercise and eat a healthy diet is the best way to help alleviate illness and say I love you.
