E Is for Environment
Stories to Help Children Care for Their World--at Home, at School, and at Play
Like your own kids, Elliott and Lucy wanted to be good to the environment, but sometimes, they could get a bit careless.
They kept the water running when they brushed their teeth.
They didn’t turn off the lights when they left a room.
They loved using lots of paper when they did arts and crafts.
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!

It’s in the Bag
Today it was Dad’s turn to shop for groceries for dinner, so he took Elliott and Lucy with him to Wholesome Choices Market, the kids’ favorite grocery store. Lucy loved going there to see all the beautiful displays of fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers that came from farmers nearby.
Elliott liked to go to the grocery store because they always had creepy-looking fish on ice in the fish department. Elliott pretended that the fish were talking to one another, and he made up funny voices for them to match their mouths. “Hello, Mr. Salmon, how...see more
