There's been so much focus lately on helping to save the Earth, going green, cutting energy and whatnot... but why not get the kids involved?? Now's the time to get them going on the right track, when they are young enough not to know a difference. I think that for adults its so much harder to change habits- running around in the car whenever you feel like it, leaving lights on, not recycling etc... because we've been living this way for so long.
Kids are fairly easy to train, at least I've noticed with mine, so far. And part of getting Boug, and eventually, Lil' Buddy, to be more environmentally responsible, is to make it fun!! I know I've said a million times that Boug loves to read, and she just got a great book- 20 Easy Ways To Help Save The Earth, by Coach Pedro and Susan Adam Rita.
This book is so great for giving kids ideas for how they can contribute to saving our Earth. Boug's favorite page says, "Plant seeds, even if they are only flowers. It will help the birds and the insects find food." Pages are beautifully illustrated and the entire book is bi-lingual! The opposite page says the same thing in Spanish, with another beautiful illustration!!
