10 Awesome Earth Day Books for Preschoolers

Show your preschooler why the Earth needs our love and protection, and that it’s important enough to have it’s own special day.
on April 14, 2016

Every day we teach our kids about caring for the environment when they see us putting cardboard into the recycling bin, using scrap paper for grocery lists, and re-using a water bottle instead of buying bottled water.

Still, with Earth Day on its way, take a little extra time and share some of these great picture books with your preschoolers to help them learn why we should care for our planet and what Earth Day is all about!
