One of the first things we teach our kids is how to recognize colours. But ‘green’ isn’t as simple as it once was. It’s now a whole way of living that impacts everything we do as well as our planet.
So how do you explain that?
E Is for Environment by Ian James Corlett is a great way to start.
Also the author of E Is for Ethics, and writer of many popular kids’ TV series such as Being Ian and Rolie Polie Olie, Ian knows lots about kids and speaking their language.
This sweet book is a series of stories following Lucy and Elliot as they learn environmental lessons at home, school and at play. Each story is followed with questions for you to share with your own kids as a discussion starter. It’s also filled with interesting enviro-facts that kids are sure to glom onto. You can learn more about Ian and his book through this video and you can also check out a chapter excerpt of his book.
Because this month we’re all about ‘green’, we’re giving away five copies of E Is for Environment to our readers. To enter, simply post a response to this blog before April 30 sharing a tidbit on how you have helped to teach your kids how to help the environment. We’ll conduct a random draw from all of them to choose our winners.
