Living a green life is highly expected to us. As a mother and a parent, we are the first teacher of our children. Our children look upon us and they imitate what we does. Starting on our own simple way, we can be their role models and in their early age, they will learn the benefits and ways on how they can help to spread green living. Remember, that starting young can make a big difference.
Children Books or Green-Eco Books that discusses about ways and tips on green living are a great way to instill earth friendly habits to our small ones. We need to encourage them and we should also set the examples first.
Here are some of the books I have seen worth recommending and reading:

Description: When we published The Green Guide in 2008, Meryl Streep called it “the ultimate green living reference.” Now, building on that success, here’s a guide to eco-friendly parenting that’s expertly organized and filled with practical advice, definitive explanations, and imaginative ideas.Addressing the key environmental issues faced by parents of young children today, this book takes a straightforward approach to such urgent concerns as lead-painted toys; the risks and benefits of vaccinations, antibiotics, and vitamins; the potential side effects of plastic bottles and containers; how to manage food allergies and avoid fat- and sugar-filled snacks; and much more.
This is for pregnant moms like me:
