Helping kids think about their earth's future is no easy task.

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. 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.

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.
