Little Green Books Review and Giveaway

This winter my son and I have gotten really really familiar with all of his books. With the freezing temps outside and a new baby in the house, we spend a lot of time in the warm house doing his favorite activity - reading. 

One of my passions is living a natural and eco-friendly lifestyle, and that is why I was thrilled to find  Little Green Books, so I can teach my son these concepts through his favorite activity, reading! This new series of books will get little ones excited about going green. From recycling and replanting to creating an awareness of endangered animals and much more, Little Green Books plant the seeds for earth-friendly living at an early age. Each book in this environmentally friendly line is made from recycled materials - proving their commitment to this worthy cause.

I really like how Little Green Books set themselves apart from other book companies and live their own mission statement. The way they manufacture their books is also environmentally friendly. Their books are printed on recycled materials with vegetable or soy inks. Love that!

I received three of their wonderful books: My First Garden, What Do You See, and Little Panda.  

My First Garden is a fun little board book about a mom and daughter planting and working on their garden. Together they watch the colorful vegetables grow, grow, grow! This book teaches a first concept of colors as well. My two year old son loved helping us in the garden last summer, so he absolutely loved this book! It got him all excited again to grow our own food. I think every child should understand where food really comes from! I also really liked that the book has a handle die-cut through on every page so kids can take the book with them wherever they go!

What Do You See? is a fun interactive book about endangered animals.  From a panda bear to a butterfly, each page features text and die cuts which hint at the animal's identity, until finally it is revealed by lifting the flap!  I remember as a kid loving these kind of books, and it is fun to see how much my son loves this one too!

Little Panda is a cloth book about a little panda and his monkey friend. It is made from 50% recycled material. The covers are Polartec® fleece made from recycled material. The fabric is machine-washable and the covers are embroidered. This book is perfect for my little baby girl, since she is starting to love to explore touch and loves to be read to.


Little Green Books also has a section of downloadable activities on their site related to the books, which provide great additional resources for moms interested in sharing more lessons with their children.  Also, check out their Little Green Blog
I love books that teach valuable lessons while they entertain our children, and that is why I am just so excited about Little Green Books and their products! The books are very affordable, and would be great gifts too!
