The author of E Is for Ethics offers a new interactive family book featuring twenty-six original stories with different eco-friendly messages, accompanied by delightful illustrations, discussion questions, and tips for conserving energy and natural resources.

While there are many children’s books on the market that emphasize the importance of eco-awareness, there are few parenting books available that help shape a family discussion on what it means to be environmentally friendly.

E Is for Environment fills that void. Perfect for reading together with children, this book will help both kids and adults think about ways to make their homes and habits better for the earth. Each story features Elliott and his younger sister Lucy, and each focuses on a different eco-friendly message to help kids learn how to appreciate our planet. A fun illustration and thought-provoking discussion questions accompany each tale, in addition to clever tips for thinking “green” and conserving natural resources.

Corlett’s warm, approachable writing style, paired with R.A. Holt’s charming illustrations, result in a winning formula that is sure to garner the same rave plaudits that E Is for Ethics earned.
