Review ~ What Does it Mean to Be Green? from Little Pickle Press

What Does it Mean to Be Green? from Little Pickle Press Review

I was given this book from Little Pickle Press in exchange for my honest opinion.  

Looking for a simple way to explain to a child what it means to be Green and Eco-friendly?  The book, What Does it Mean to Be Green?  by Rana DiOrio and published by Little Pickle Press Publications  is perfect to help you do just that!  It is written well with cute illustrations and easy for childern to understand.  This books encourages children to help others, even Grown-ups, to be Green too!

My 7 year old was able to read this book with just a little help from me.  After reading it we talked about ways are family is being Green and ways to help others be Green too. My son said that his school does recycle but sometimes the other kids do not throw their paper in there. He said he is going to start helping others be Green by reminding them to recycle.

This book is really cute and even has silly parts like, “Does it mean feeling sick in the car? No.” It also included great ideas that even a child can do to be Green like truing off lights, turning off water, recycling, using both sides of your paper to draw, and so on.

    Lovely review of a wonderful book! My children were introduced to Rana DiOrio’s What Does It Mean To Be… series by way of the last book, What Does It Mean To Be Safe? and they love all of them. That being said, What Does It Mean To Be Green? is the one I see them picking up again and again. It’s an excellent Earth Day resource. Little Pickle Press also has a free Earth Day activity book for download at their site as well.
