Coco & Dean Explorers of the World takes young readers on three amazing adventures, from your own backyard to exotic destinations. While the characters discover the world around them, they also learn to be aware of environmental issues. Think Like a Cardinal teaches children to be aware of their carbon footprint. "Take only what we need and use what we take..." Conquering Rabbit Hill sheds light on the topic of trash and encourages us all to reduce, reuse and recycle. In Vacation Vortex the characters discover the effects of pollution in our oceans. The Explore with Coco & Dean section at the end of each story provides helpful resources for kids (and adults) to learn more about the environmental topics discussed and to take action. Coco & Dean is a well-crafted and thought provoking read for the next generation of environmentalists!

My 10-year old daughter and I LOVED Coco and Dean! The author is teaching us lessons that we don't relay to our children often enough. It is a very inspiring book that empowers us to feel like we can ALL make a difference in keeping our planet clean. I would recommend teachers of all grade levels share these stories with their students every school year!!

I bought Coco and Dean to read with my 5 year old son. We both enjoyed the way the book was organized into stand alone stories which included engaging dialogue and new vocabulary. We loved the family interactions and the storytelling was fun and relatable. The environmental lessons all involved practical solutions to get kids thinking about their footprint and inspire them to take action in their community. This would make an excellent tool for teachers looking to incorporate environmental education into their classroom. I'd recommend this book to anyone!

We love Coco and Dean: Explorers of the World in our house! It is in the regular roster of bedtime stories my daughter chooses. This book is such a great introduction to environmental awareness for children. I love that the tone emphasizes a child’s sense of wonder and love of the world around them as their inspiration to care for their environment. There is no condescension, just inspiration. These fun, short, easy to read stories have already sparked great discussions with my child about environmental topics at a level she can understand. We’ve also thoroughly enjoyed the unique illustrations. My 4 year old is probably a little younger than the target age range for these books, but she is still able to thoroughly enjoy Coco and Dean’s adventures and learn about caring for our environment at a beginner’s level. I think this book will make excellent children’s birthday gifts and teacher’s gifts. I look forward to more in depth conversations with my child facilitated by these stories, and I hope there will be more Coco and Dean adventures to come in the future!

CoCo & Dean, Explorers of the World is a wonderful book to teach environmental responsibility to children (and grown-ups too.) The illustrations are an interesting blend of photography and artwork and the story lines are well written and perfectly suited for children in the primary grade levels. I look forward to seeing more books by Emily Scofield in this series and intend to use them as rewards for children participating in our environmental education activities.

This is a very charming book about our environment full of great information for young and old. Bought the book and read it through before passing on to grandchildren. I have to say I learned a few things myself! Illustrations are equally charming. Looking forward to next book in series.

Coco and Dean is a fantastic environmental awareness book for children! It does a great job of translating our environmental issues. I bought this for my niece and nephew who were instantly engaged and asking questions. I will definitely be buying this book for gifts in the future. I highly recommend this book for any family or classroom!
