How to Be an Earthling ®

Earthlings are weird! After Spork crashes his spaceship on the school playground, he joins Mrs. Buckle’s third-grade class to fulfill his mission of earning a Galaxy Scouts Explorer Badge! But figuring out how to act like an Earthling isn’t easy. Respect? Responsibility? Honesty? These rules seem completely odd to Spork! Each book in the How to Be an Earthling® series focuses on a positive character trait and encourages kids to think about how their words and actions affect others. Fun back-of-book activities reinforce the story themes.
