These days, there's a lot of talk about being green, buying organic, and protecting our planet. But making eco-friendly choices can be hard for busy families, and helping kids think about their earth's future is no easy task. Luckily, Ian James Corlett--an award-winning children's TV writer and author of E IS FOR ETHICS --is back with a guide that makes saving the environment a fun family adventure. Best of all, Elliott and Lucy--who made values and morals so accessible in E IS FOR ETHICS --are here to help. 

Like your own kids, Elliott and Lucy wanted to be good to the environment, but sometimes, they could get a bit careless.

They kept the water running when they brushed their teeth.

They didn't turn off the lights when they left a room.

They loved using lots of paper when they did arts and crafts.  

In these stories, Elliott and Lucy learn that being good to the environment isn't a big chore--it's actually pretty cool! (And they get to teach Mom and Dad a thing or two along the way). With this engaging, read-together book, families will see that the small things they do every day can make a big impact. Teaching your children about the planet has never been so easy or entertaining--and before you know it, they'll be reminding YOU to recycle!

Elliott and Lucy are inspired to be green after attending an assembly. There they meet Matt and Stephanie who were running around the whole of North America to raise a million dollars for the planet. They challenge the children to make small changes in their homes and environment. Each chapter has a different topic: recycle, take bags to the grocery store, walk instead of drive when possible, spend time with people instead of buying them more stuff, and conserve water and heat. Suggestions on what you can do to improve the environment are at the end of each chapter including ideas like changing the temperature in your home based on your activities.
