The Little Environmentalists: Book Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed with 156 comments. Thank you to all who entered. Congratulations to the lucky winner ~ Marie!

My husband and I are teaching our children the importance of being green. My son loves to recycle and all of the money he makes goes into his savings account. It's really great because it's teaching him the importance of saving money as well.

I was very happy to learn about The Little Environmentalists. This company sent me two books about being kind to the Earth. My children loved reading them and as a parent, I was thrilled to be encouraging them to do what's good for the environment in a fun and child friendly way.

Go Green With Me is an excellent book about the different ways to go green. From recycling to water conservation, solar power and more, this book is a wonderful way to help teach your child about the importance of taking care of our precious environment. My kids loved the illustrations and it really contains such valuable information. I was learning myself!

Nature Discovery In My Backyard is a terrific book about animals and plants. This wonderful book takes you on a kid-friendly and creative exploration through nature. My daughter is fascinated with insects and animals. This book really made an impact on her and she loved learning about flowers, birds and following the journey of the little girl in the book.

These two books are dynamite learning tools for all children and I highly recommend them. It's great to see a company that cares enough about our young children and the world around them. Giving your child books about being green shows them that you also care about our planet. We all need to think about the future generations who will benefit from our awareness.

The Little Environmentalists books are printed on 100% Recycled Paper which is 100% post-consumer waste processed, chlorine-free and recyclable. This company is doing the right thing by caring about our forests, landfills and energy.

Now is your chance to own these wonderful books. The Little Environmentalists would like to offer 2 lucky readers the books I've talked about. You may also use the discount code "spring" to receive each book for only $5!

  72. I love that this company is teaching the young (and old) about the environment, recycling, saving energy by way of their books, the Energy Kids Page with Energy Facts, games, energy history and classroom activities. They also have a Q & A on the Environmental Benefits of Recycled Paper, understanding recycled paper and recycled fiber fact sheet. They also donate $1.00 from the sale of each Nature Discovery book to the National Wildlife Federation. So they talk the talk and walk the walk.
