I was given this book from Little Pickle Press in exchange for my honest opinion.
Looking for a simple way to explain to a child what it means to be Green and Eco-friendly? The book, What Does it Mean to Be Green? by Rana DiOrio and published by Little Pickle Press Publications is perfect to help you do just that! It is written well with cute illustrations and easy for childern to understand. This books encourages children to help others, even Grown-ups, to be Green too!
My 7 year old was able to read this book with just a little help from me. After reading it we talked about ways are family is being Green and ways to help others be Green too. My son said that his school does recycle but sometimes the other kids do not throw their paper in there. He said he is going to start helping others be Green by reminding them to recycle.
This book is really cute and even has silly parts like, “Does it mean feeling sick in the car? No.” It also included great ideas that even a child can do to be Green like truing off lights, turning off water, recycling, using both sides of your paper to draw, and so on.
I really do love this book and want to share it with everyone! I already contacted my son’s teacher about reading for his class and maybe all the 1st grade classes for Earth Day!
This colorful, insightful story demystifies for children what it means to be green by helping them to view everyday tasks through an environmentally-friendly lens. The book empowers children to do whatever they can to protect the earth’s precious resources. Don’t be surprised if they start coming up with suggestions of their own for you!
