We've taught our lil ones to separate the recycling from the trash and why we shop at the natural foods market rather than the chain grocery store. Now it's time to expand their horizons to see just what an impact their actions have on the earth as a whole. Sammy & Sue Go Green Too ($14) is the first in a new series of books based on a mother/daughter team out to educate their neighbors about the importance of leading an Eco-friendly life. Through their journey, they learn firsthand about organic farming, hybrid cars, earth-friendly cleaning products and all natural ice cream and share their discoveries in a way that even the youngest tots in your household will understand.
Along with their new book, Sammy & Sue are introducing an Online Virtual World for Kids. The site is divided into several "villages" each representing different environments in which kids can play a variety of games to learn how the areas are affected by environmental toxins and what they can do to save them. Among the Eco-environments visited are the seashore, the forest, a desert and an urban/suburban area.
