Good Questions: Green Books
Emile wrote us an e-mail: “Hey, Ohdeedoh! I see that it’s Green month and the timing is perfect. My nephew’s birthday is coming up and I would love to get him some good children’s books that deal with green living. Something that would be good for a 6-year-old would be perfect and I know my sister would be so impressed with my Good Uncle-vism. Any recommendations? Thanks!”
Good question, Emile.
We’re really big fans of the Why Should I…Series Written by the aptly named Jen Green and Illustrated by Mike Gordon. The titles in the series include: Why Should I Recycle?, Why Should I Save Energy?, Why Should I Save Water? and Why Should I Protect Nature? All of which are questions which children and adults need to ask themselves and answer.
The books, by the World Wildlife Fund, are geared at children ages 4 to 7 and teach children the value of eco-living in an approachable, easy to understand way. Each book also features suggestions for parents and teachers on how to expand on the subjects covered.
Are there any other green children’s books you can recommend to Emile?
