Why Big Mo should be read this Earth Day, a poem for Megan Padalecki by Tracy Diane Miller

On this Earth Day
I recommend a tale
Of why preserving our natural resources
Will allow this planet to prevail

That tale
Is the story of Big Mo
A literary treasure
As many readers have come to know

I applaud Megan Padalecki
With imagination and talent did she weave
An enchanting book
With an important message so conceived

Big Mo is a pet iguana
Insatiable hunger is his fate
In search of food
He will not wait

As he fills his belly
Food is his desire
Yet will the beauty of the natural resources suffer
This planet we admire

Big Mo teaches us
Excess we must fight
If generations can continue to enjoy Earth
Both day and night
