Earth Day

One of the things I love most about Barefoot Books is the company's commitment to respecting and caring for our planet.  Their products teach children about the interconnectedness of all living things in an age-appropriate and respectful manner.  And their actions back up their words; all of their books are printed on ancient forest friendly paper, using soy and vegetable based inks and water based adhesives. 

Here are some terrific picks to share with the children in your life on Earth Day and every day:

Learn how different cultures around the world set out to live in harmony with the natural world. The seven folk tales are each followed by a hands-on activity that promotes green living and reinforces the eco-messages of the stories.

Three children embark on a day-long trek through the rainforest, discovering all sorts of exotic creatures in their natural habitats. The charming, rhyming text highlights an adjective for each creature. The story is complemented by educational endnotes about the creatures in the story, and the peoples of the rainforest.  Available in English and Spanish.

Learn memory and matching skills with this classic matching game, featuring 24 pairs of animals and plant life. Game pieces are printed on recycled, laminated board.

Dig underground with moles, soar high into the mountains with eagles, and travel down a tropical river with crocodiles. This rhyming selection explores the homes of many different creatures, and includes educational endnotes about the animals and their habitats.

Share the message, hear the song, and see Whole World come to life! We are donating ten percent of sales from Whole World to benefit global conservation. Sing around the planet, from high in the mountains to low in the valleys, in every town and every city, and with all the fish and birds, trees and flowers! Includes eco-tips on how to live green and a catchy singalong CD, sung by Fred Penner.
