6 great children’s books about the environment to read for Earth Day

Help your little ones save the planet this Earth Day.

Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd, the 51st anniversary of the start of the modern environmental movement. The theme for this year's celebration is Restore Our Earth. From April 20-22 EarthDay.org will host a digital environmental summit on various environmental justice issues (featuring youth climate crisis activists!). It's never too early to start talking to kids about our planet and environment and ways to take care of the earth, and picture books are a great way to introduce them to the importance of plants and flowers, trees, clean water, and recycling. Better yet, after reading some of these books, you can even make a day out of it and tie in an Earth Day activity related to one of the books you read that will help keep the planet healthy!

We've put together a short list of some of our favorite books to read for Earth Day.
