Childrens Books about the Environment (Earth Day Unit Study)

I am in love with all of these childrens books about the environment — it’s such a fundamental thing to teach your kids.

Even though we’re focusing on an Earth Day study unit today, really every day should be about the environment! My sons feel very connected to the environment and it is a constant discussion about taking care of the world around us.

My boys are very passionate about the environment.

They take after their mom!

Reading lots and lots of childrens books about the environment definitely helped.

One of our all-time favorite books that is also on this list is The Curious Garden.

We have read that book over and over and over. It’s absolutely delightful!
