#49 Read to your Child About the 3 R's

If you are reading to your child or grandchild anyways, why not choose some books that help reinforce the 3 R's. And while you are at it, check these books out of the library instead of buying them, unless you think it may become a beloved book or you may re-read it over & over. Here are some that we are reading that we got from the library or from our own collection at home:

  1. Lorax by Dr. Suess

  2. Whole World by Christopher Corr

  3. Earth-friendly Crafts by Kathy Ross

  4. Easy Earth-friendly Crafts in 5-Steps by Anna Plomer

  5. The Everything Green Book by Diane McDilda

  6. Follow the Line Around the World by Laura Ljungkvist

  7. Green Wilma by Todd Arnold

  8. I Can Save the Earth by Anita Holmes

  9. Michael Recycle by Ellie Bethel

  10. Recycle Every Day by Nancy Wallace

  11. Recycled Crafts Box by Laura Martin

  12. Stuff: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle by Steven Kroll

  13. Trash & Recycling by Stephanie Turnball

  14. A Walk in the Rainforest by Kristin Pratt

  15. The Whole Green World by Tony Johnston

The impact we have on our children & grandchildren is amazing. If we start reading to them young, they will enjoy reading. If we teach them about recycling when they are young, it will become a natural part of their life that they won't even have to think about.
