In my family, being eco-friendly is very important. We use cloth napkins, stainless steel water bottles, green cleaning supplies, soap nuts as laundry detergents and reusable sandwich bags as well as lunch bags. Basically, we try to be green in every way that we can. Even though this is our lifestyle now, it is hard to explain to a 5 year old why we do the things we do, so it has been very helpful to read Little Green Books to our daughter. My family received the "I can save the ocean, " This is our world," "Don't throw that away," "The adventure of an aluminum can," "Easy to be green" and " The adventure of a plastic bottle" to review.
Little Green Books cover a variety of subjects, teaching children about the dangers of global warming, the benefits of recycling, what they can do to help endangered animals, and much more. Although we thought all of the books we received to review were very educational. We especially like, "Don't Throw That Away," and "The Adventures of a Plastic Bottle." In "Don't Throw That Away," DD got to learn all about recycling as well as reusing items (finding a different purpose for things) from around the house. This book is actually made from 100% recycle material. So, after we are done reading this book, I will remind her that the book she is holding in her hands actually came from things people like us take to the recycling center. The Adventures of a Plastic Bottle details the journey of a plastic bottle, from a blob of crude oil to a plastic bottle to a fleece sweatshirt! Although we do not use plastic bottles in our household. DD loves reading this book. She loves seeing the transformations a plastic bottle takes, this is a fun book to read for both adults and kids.
If you are teaching your kids about being green, or you just want to give them more information, I recommend checking out Little Green Books to see the different books they have to offer.
Many thanks to Little Green Books. The company has generously offered the same 5 books I have received to review as giveaway prizes to 5 of my lucky readers (US residents only please). Each giveaway winner will receive all 5 books.
