Go Green

Go Green!

Join the green team and learn how to reduce, reuse, and recycle!

illustrated by Miguel Sanchez

In Go Green!, four friends set out to learn about how to protect the environment. After a birthday party sparks their awareness of environmental issues such as wasted food, discarded paper and plastic, and the trash that ends up in landfills, they begin seeking ways to better care for the planet.

As they talk to adults about these ideas, the children ask questions such as, “What is climate change?” “How can we conserve natural resources?” “What are renewable energy sources?” and “How can we help wildlife?” Together they take action at school, at home, and beyond to reduce, reuse, and recycle, and to educate others about the importance of going green.

Colorful art featuring a diverse group of children illustrates the book and brings to life a wide range of ideas for protecting the earth. The book concludes with an index, a glossary of terms, and a list of resources for further information.
