Read an Excerpt

"Being green means...
...turning the lights on in your home only when you need them.
...eating foods grown locally, or even from your own garden.
...walking to the park instead of getting a ride in a car."

Good book for explaining "green" living to kids, but my two boys (ages 3 and 6) were not very interested in it. According to my kindergartner, "It's kinda boring." It does have nice illustrations and is well written with simple, kid friendly language. It'd be a good book for Earth Day!

It gives children a better understanding of going green. My 8 yr old read it. And my 5 yr old had it read to her. It was easy to understand for all elementary children. Do recommend...

Great book for young children to learn about being green. Bought it for my 3yo and he seemed really inerested in it. It was a bit hard to hear, had to turn the volume all the way up.

This is a cute book. But if your child enjoys the read to me feature I wouldn't buy it. Even with the volume all the way up it is hard to hear.
