5 Earth-Friendly Ways to Feed a Book-Lover
  • Visit your local library for a never ending supply!
  • Host a book exchange among friends or participate in paperback swap.
  • Shop library book sales or thrift stores for gently used books.
  • If you shop on-line (like me) be sure to recycle packaging!
  • Add Earth-friendly titles like I Love Our Earth! by Bill Martin Jr. and Recycle by Gail Gibbons to help your child understand why being earth-minded matters.
I Love Our EarthRecycle!: A Handbook for Kids 






Bonus: The text of I Love Our Earth is a free verse poem with some beautiful illustrations – so it fits right in with our celebration of poetry month.
I have yet to find an Easter book that I’m really in love with – we have come across a few that are ok or even entertaining, but not great – can you help? There must be some egg-cellent ones out there! (sorry – couldn’t help the pun…)

Your books look great! It was hard with Earth Day and Easter in the same week to balance the reading.

Happy Easter!

Oooo- I really like the idea of handing down used books with hand-me-down clothes...

I haven't really found a religious Easter book that I really like but my kids do like Jan Brett's "The Easter Egg."
