Every child deserves to have a good book read to her. Reading aloud is one of the most important activities you as a parent, grandparent, sibling, or caregiver can do together. No matter what your values are, reading can help communicate via illustrations and stories. Those “green” parents who want to share their eco-values with their offspring can do so by reading or supplying books about the environment. Here are some of my favorites:



· The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss is my all-time favorite. To say the least, he was ahead of his time when it was published in 1971!! Through his whimsical play on nonsense words, Dr. Seuss educates his readers not to destroy our environment. In the end, our future is left in the hands of a child. Indeed, this tale is timeless.

· Planet earth Gets Well, by Madeline Kaplan. This book introduces its readers to detailed changes you can make to help Earth become healthy.

· 365 Penguins, by Jean-Luc Fromental. A family unexpectedly receives one penguin each day for one year….thus the title, 365 Penguins. Not only does this engaging book tie in math, but also ecology and geography.

· The Down to Earth Guide to Global Warming, by Laurie David and Cambria Gordon. Amusing, educational and empowering; this book provides the readers with the knowledge to inspire and to take action.

· The Last Polar Bears, by Harry Horse. A grandfather and his dog engage on an expedition to find a polar bear living in the wild. Told through various letters written to his grandson at home, Grandfather and his canine pal encounter various humorous obstacles.

· The Tree , by Dana Lyons and David Lane Danioth. This splendidly illustrated book (inspired by a song which includes the cd) is about an ancient fir living in the Pacific Rain forest. The Tree talks of his long life: what he has seen and sheltered over his 800 years. This is undoubtedly a nature’s treasure.

· Why Should I? by Jen Green. This enjoyable easy to read series demonstrates the importance of protecting nature.
