Kids Are Turning Green After Reading The Little Environmentalists Newest Book|
Parents Delight in Planet-Friendly Preschool Series
Hartland, WI (December 2, 2008)– It’s easy to teach youngsters good manners like saying “please” and “thank you.” But how can you teach them to “turn off,” “unplug” and “reuse?” Those are just a few of the buzz words to living a greener life. Parents and teachers can turn to a delightful new book, I’m Turning Green, to educate even the youngest of children to make a positive impact on our planet.
Did you know that turning off the water while brushing teeth can save up to five gallons of water? These everyday lessons are sprinkled throughout I’m Turning Green as the main character, a child, slowly turns green from head to toe! The Little Environmentalists, publishers of children’s literature to promote environmental awareness and appreciation, began their book series this fall with Nature Discovery In My Backyard, which has been receiving rave reviews from parenting blogs. Their newest book, also written by Rebecca Mattano, takes the reader inside the house, the grocery store and the farmer’s market in a picture book format.
“The pictures in the book are very realistic (they look like photos) and they are big,” writes mommy blogger Sassy Frazz in her review of Nature Discovery In My Backyard. “My kids love looking at the nature pictures and we had some great talks about the environment and what is outside our world.”
Agrees blogger Stay At Home Moms Answers, “For environmentally conscious, eco-friendly parents, the process of teaching your child how to appreciate and protect the environment can sometimes be rather difficult. Thanks to The Little Environmentalists, a company that is dedicated to sharing environmental knowledge, this process has just become drastically easier.”
Retailing for $7.95, I’m Turning Green can be found at www.thelittleenvironmentalists.com and Amazon.com. Each of their books offers Earth Notes full of simple steps that families and classrooms can incorporate to conserve water, energy and other natural resources. Get a rain barrel, wash only full loads in the dishwasher or unplug unused appliances are just a few of their two-page list of handy tips.
As author Mattano, also a mom of two, asserts, “if everyone in America took these simple steps to go green, we could improve the quality of life for our children and future generations.”
