365 Ways to Live Green for Kids by Sheri Amsel

Weekly Trip to the Library for Nannies

This week when I visited the library I found tons of great children’s books about Earth Day. Reading children’s books to kids helps reinforce concepts you would like to teach them. But I chose today’s book 365 Ways to Live Green for Kids: Saving the Environment at Home, School, or at Play–Every Day!by Sheri Amsel to recommend to nannies and au pairs because it not only includes interesting information but it also provides hands-on projects and activities to do with the kids to promote an eco-friendly life.

I love that this book is a simple, yet extremely informative starter book with literally hundreds of games, activities, and fun ideas to get kids excited about living a greener lifestyle. While having fun the children will learn how to protect plants and animals, why to choose organic foods, and the three Rs: reducing waste, reusing materials, and recycling. These are great lessons that the kids will carry on into their adulthood. The publisher recommends these easy concepts for any third grader and up to read and follow.
