green friday, green kids.

Our generation has had to recognize the impact our actions are having on our planet and change our ways of thinking and living. We all know it takes a desire and effort to change our bad habits. As a parent, I recognize the importance of teaching my children at their young age about environmental awareness and the significance their behavior has on their lives and future generations. So I was thrilled when I saw this list of 10 green books on treehugger that parents and preschoolers will love to read. Pick up one or two and enjoy a little reading and cuddle time with your future environmentalists.

Have You Seen Birds? by Joanne Oppenheim and Barbara Reid
