Books don’t have to be preachy to teach kids the value of preserving the planet. Check out these books–some old, some new–that are good discussion-starters for Earth Month.

Even the youngest child can learn to give thanks for the earth with Earth Day ($10), an alphabet book that talks about everything from apricots to zinnias with bright and whimsical illustrations.

Published in 1971, Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax ($11) offers an important ecological warning about the dangers of clear-cutting, pollution, and disregard for the environment.

We Planted a Tree ($13) is a simple, sweet poem that depicts two families in two very different parts of the world as they plant a tree, and watch it clean the air, enrichthe soil, and give fruit and shade.

During April we’ll be highlighting luxurious, eco-friendly products for you and your baby every day. Follow the eco-friendly tag to see all our best “green” finds.
