Why is the sky blue?  Where do clouds come from? Where does trash go? According to a British study, children dish out 73 questions a day!


Children are very curious and often question how and why the world works the way it does. Introducing children to environmental books not only helps them make sense of their questions but also sets the stage for a lifelong appreciation of nature and plants the seeds of environmental stewardship along the way. Hopefully, your child is already learning and engaging with environmental subjects at school, but it’s important to supplement their knowledge with books you can read at home.


So, if you’re looking to raise an eco-warrior, but need a starting point for books, we’ve got you covered. Check out these lists of recommended environmental books for your little ones:
