Beautiful Books with an Eco-Friendly Message
Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle. The text of this gorgeous book reads like a nursery rhyme about ten different animals, each of which is—or has been—on the endangered list. Toddlers might miss the point, but they'll enjoy looking at the lush colors and beautiful creatures.
For children ages 2 to 3 years.

Where Once There Was a Wood by Denise Fleming. This just might be the most gorgeous children's book around! Fleming's text and stunning illustrations recall a wood, meadow, creek, plus their inhabitants—and the housing development that replaced them all.
For children ages 2 years and up.
