Favorite children's books for Earth Day.

Books are one of the first things I reach for when I want to teach my girls about something.

So, when it came time to start talking about Earth Day, I went to the library. These books are all appropriate for preschoolers, plus older kids will enjoy them too.

When searching for Earth Day books, choose ones about recycling, planting, trees, gardening, energy reduction, or the climate. Do you have any favorite books about Earth Day?
