What is the role of younger generation in the Green campaign? ‘Many of these books are actually instilling environmental values without being didactic’ this is a great fact and for many Parents, we look forward to finding more of these insightful books online for our children this spring!

Save Money, Save The Planet

GreenTextbooks.org specializes in the recycling of textbooks, DVDs, CDs. Buying used textbooks not only saves you money, but cuts down on greenhouse gases caused by the manufacturing of new textbooks.
With GreenTextbooks.org you’re not only saving trees, you are saving some green.

BTW–at the my daughter’s school’s book fair last year, I was impressed by the number green books they had. They were under the science category. I believe Think Green! was among them.

I am always tickled by the ideas they have, impressed by the questions they ask and thrilled when I receive an email or phone call from parents letting me know the master plan to get all adults to think green, via their children, is working! Best to you. http://www.kidsthinkbig.com

Baily http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/07/green-books-for-kids/#comment-14889 Thu, 30 Jul 2009 22:29:52 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=1018#comment-14889 It is critical to get children interested in environmental affairs as early as possible and keep them engaged through their school careers so they will be good citizens when they graduate from high school. The books on your list will help a lot to get young children interested. Local city and county libraries can also be of help in this effort as well. So I have passed the list in your article on to the Circulation Manager of our City of Mission Viejo Library to ask if it has those books and also if an environmental awareness book display could be set up either in the children’s department or in the display bookcase by the front door. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
