I've Tried Patience But You Always Want a War

Today's Saturday Scavenger Shots word was chosen by Tara @ Eclectic Spaghetti.  The word she chose is a big one....EARTH.  Our planet, third rock from the sun, the pale blue dot.  Some of us are said to be "down to earth".  Soil is also called "EARTH"...elemental.  However you look at it, EARTH is important.  My photos were taken this morning when I got to they don't look too important or imposing.  Not quite fitting for such a subject.  Yet here we go...some EARTH for you.

Here are some Children's non-fiction books about EARTH. 
There is a lot to learn about our very own planet.

Here is the globe that stands by the Children's Information Desk.  It is a representation of planet EARTH. 
It is not terribly imposing when we scale it down so very much. 
Kids love looking at it and finding different locations around the world.

Thanks for joining me for this little celebration of EARTH.  Maybe I can persuade Mrs. Hairy Woman @  Northern Sky Chronicles to choose a word for next week?
I hope your weekend is heaven on EARTH :-)

Hee hee! My selections had a silly rabbit theme and yours a library theme. Very cool beans! That's what makes this game so fun... how diverse our thinking is or how they are similar.
Great choices!

I love how you did the word.. awesome

So I have to think hard about a word and then who to select for the following week.. Hmmm..

Silly: haha! I think that is exactly right...all of our Earths are the same, but viewed through a different lens.

Mrs: Why, thank you much! And thank you for choosing a word. I like it!
