Does your child talk about recycling?
Does she move through her days with Mother Earth's needs before hers?
Does he remind you to turn off the water, lights, and electronics when they're not being used?
Is he the one who makes everyone use cloth napkins over paper?
Did she insist on a family compost center?
Then try these books for your kiddo who wants to save the Earth:
