National Geographic’s Green Guide Families is the perfect green family starter book for parents who want to learn more about green living. If you only buy one green family book, this is the one to own, because it covers all the basics in an easy to digest manner. Each chapter is broken up into logical green steps and there are also quick takeaways like fast “Take Action” sections at the end of each chapter that cover all the key points and action steps in said chapter. There are also tons of cool pullouts including green definitions, green on a shoestring and other quick eco-facts and tips are scattered throughout the book. Bonus, this book walks you easily through the pre-baby years all the way to college, so it’s totally all-family members inclusive. Lastly, there’s an excellent resource section at the back of the book. Read a full review of this book.

Green Books for Babies

Now, it’s not as if you’re going to be able to easily teach a baby how to recycle or conserve energy or why organic food is best, but you can introduce even very young babies to the sights and sounds of the natural world through books. Early nature exposure is key if you want to raise a green child, and Listen, Listen, is a fun, nature-packed, sound-filled experience that can help. Listen, Listen examines the amazing and varied sounds of nature, from insects buzzing to birds chirping to leaves crunching and rustling. This book combines wonderful nature sounds with soothing rhythmic verse. The images are beautiful, iconic and include all the seasons of the year. There’s also an end section that includes fun hide and seek games for each season. Listen, Listen is from Barefoot Books and they offer many other cool nature minded books for babes including I Took the Moon for a Walk, Skip Through the Seasons, My Mama Earth and more — all featuring amazing images.

Mother Goose goes green in this clever adaptation: The Green Mother Goose: Saving the World One Rhyme at a Time. This playful and beautiful picture book invites tots to go green and have fun while doing it. The book puts fun spins on classics such as Old Mother Hubbard, who shops with cloth grocery bags; Old King Coal, who is working hard to keep our skies smoke-free; and Hickety, Pickety is now a cage-free hen; and Jack is a better citizen who tries to turn off the lights. Bonus: this eco-friendly book is printed on recycled paper with agri-based inks and all of the whimsical eco-friendly collage images are created from ticket stubs, newspapers, and other reused items.
