These days, there’s a lot of talk about being green, buying organic, and protecting our planet. But making eco-friendly choices can be hard for busy families, and helping kids think about their earth’s future is no easy task. Luckily, Ian James Corlett—an award-winning children’s TV writer and author of E IS FOR ETHICS—is back with a guide that makes saving the environment a fun family adventure. Best of all, Elliott and Lucy—who made values and morals so accessible in E IS FOR ETHICS—are here to help.
Like your own kids, Elliott and Lucy wanted to be good to the environment, but sometimes, they could get a bit careless.
They kept the water running when they brushed their teeth.
They didn’t turn off the lights when they left a room.
They loved using lots of paper when they did arts and crafts.
In these stories, Elliott and Lucy learn that being good to the environment isn’t a big chore—it’s actually pretty cool! (And they get to teach Mom and Dad a thing or two along the way). With this engaging, read-together book, families will see that the small things they do every day can make a big impact. Teaching your children about the planet has never been so easy or entertaining—and before you know it, they’ll be reminding YOU to recycle!
