Little Green Books Review and SUPER sized GIVEAWAY

Who knew??  I didn't.  When I ran across Little Green Books by Simon and Schuster I was pleasantly surprised.  Love the idea behind the books and the website.  There is more than just books offered on the site.   Parents and caregivers can find great stuff on the blog and some really cool games for pre schoolers and younger too!  Downloadables, green tips and more really help parents and teachers find fun ways to get kids involved in an Eco friendly way.  They introduce fun characters like Little Green Monster for your kids to fall in love with.  Smartly written and extremely colorful, they catch the attention of even the youngest readers. 

Little Green Books are printed with vegetable or soy based inks, made from recycled materials and are 100% recyclable!  I was so happy to see they had books available for little ones (board books) and for a bit older (pre-school and young elementary age).  There are ton of options out there for older kiddos to learn how to help the Earth and the creatures on it but the younger group has been left out...until now.  You can even find lift the flap books to keep them entertained and involved. 
G loved these books...his fave was I Can Save the Ocean.  He loves anything to do with sea life and the ocean so this was a big hit and he loved the Little Green Monster.  I enjoyed The Polar Bear's Home as well....this story about global warming was a tug-on-the-heart story that he understood and took to heart.
