- Earth Day is a great day to talk more about the Earth and why we need to keep it clean with our
children. I love using eco-minded books to help get the message across to my daughter. When I tell her to turn off the lights, save water and recycle her trash she thinks I’m just bossing her around. But when I explain why we do those things, with a little help from cute cartoon books, she enjoys helping and wants to do her part. Here are our favorite six children’s books for Earth Day. Our suggestion: Instead of buying these titles, borrow them from your local library.
