(This giveaway is now closed for entries.  See “comments” for the winner! And thanks to all who entered!)

One of my favorite family traditions is snuggling up to read books with my kids. They love a great story and there is no better way to give a “little green lesson” than to wrap it into a fabulous story that kids can embrace.

I especially love when a book ‘practices what it preaches’ and that’s why I love Simon & Schuster’s new series of “Little Green Books”! With Earth Day right around the corner (April 22nd, so mark your calendars!) there is no better way to start the conversation about our fabulous planet Earth!  And this series of books is as green as the tales they tell… they are made from 100% recycled paper, printed with vegetable based inks and 100% recyclable too (not that you would ever want to part with them unless you were passing them along, but “just so ya’ know!”).

I’ve always encouraged reading stories to children as a way to help plant the seed of awareness for protecting our environment and endangered species, and teaching kids that they can ‘take charge’ by recycling and conserving our resources… and my kids and I give this series a big green thumbs up!

I’m excited to tell you that Simon & Schuster is also offering a terrific “book bundle” from their series of Little Green Books for a Mom Goes Green reader!  Books include:i can save

  • I Can Save the Earth!
  • I Can Save the Ocean!
  • The Polar Bears’ Home
  • Trees for the Okapis
  • SpongeBob to the Rescue

All you have to do is leave a comment saying you’d like to win and tell me about the “little green kid” you’d like to share these books with, or send a Twitter message that includes a reply to @momgoesgreen and a link to this blog. The winner will be selected on April 7, so they’ll arrive in time for Earth Day! (US entries only… sorry!)

In the meanwhile, consider sharing some “little green books” to create some “big green ideas!”

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.

There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!

  1. Thank heavens a big publisher is finally printing on 100% recycled paper etc. Now if they’d just print ALL their books this way AND by the way, plant a tree for each one sold, I’d be a very happy reader!

  2. I would love to win these “Little Green Books” for my daughter. She loves animals and pretends to be a different animal every day… (she also assigns anyone we run into with an animal name… luckily she is usually the cow 🙂 We celebrated earth hour and she made up her own song… for a 2.5 year old she already has a great appreciation for the earth and nature.

  3. Would love to read I can save the Ocean! to my 2 year old daughter – the beach is one of our favorite spots!

  4. This is great! I have two little green boys (4 and 8) that I would love to share these stories with. And both boys like reading books to their little sister (she’s 1). Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  5. I would love to win these for my 2yr old daughter. We read books everyday and we love going to the bookstore to find new books. These sound wonderful!!

  6. I would like to win these for my group of four kids. My 14 and 13 year old loves to read to the 2 year old in the house. The 8 year old is just loving to read. We are always searching for new adventures in nature in science so they would have a happy home in our collection of books. Thank you for the opportunity.

  7. Wow – these sound great. I would love to win these for my 5 month old. We have been consciously trying to live greener since the birth of our son and these books would make for the perfect night-time reading…….yes he’s really, really little but we read to him everyday and he LOVES it. And there’s no time like now to start inculcating the green way of life along with a sense of personal empowerment.

  8. I’d love to win these for my 6 yr old Matt. He loves spongeBob so I’d love to see that character save the world! LOL. Seriously we are a newly greening family and can use all the help we can get!

  9. I have a 2 year old and an 11 year old – both sweet girls. My oldest is very environmentally conscious and loves to read to her little sister. How perfect to have a Little Green Book for her to pass the message on!

  10. Our kids are avid bookworms and would love a little green business 🙂 You know our two-year old, Finn, and our three-year old, Sophie, would devour these little ditties…GREEN IS GOOD!

They look like GREAT books!
