The Little Environmentalists have come out with book number 2: I'm Turning Green, in their series to educate our children about the environment and our eco-awareness. In the book, a little girl talks about all the things that she does to do her part in helping our environment. With each thing she does, part of her turns green (with her body being colored in green), and at the end of the book, she is completely green. One fact the book points out, you can save 5 gallons of water just by turning off the faucet when you brush your teeth and wash your hands! What a savings~ for the environment and our pocketbook! For $7.95, (you can purchase the book at Amazon.com) I think this book does a super job teaching kids to be more economical and earth-friendly! The book is printed environmentally friendly: 100% recycled, 100% post consumer waste, Chlorine free and environmentally friendly ink!
I reviewed the first book from The Little Environmentalists here (click link) if you would like to read about that book, or you can see the book on the The Little Environmentalists website.
