The residents of Sesame Street teach your little ones easy ways to be eco-friendly in this adorable board book called Grouches Are Green. I purchased this book for my nephew’s first birthday. My sisters and I loved Sesame Street growing up and it’s never too early to teach children the importance of recycling and reusing!

This clever book turns Oscar’s love of trash into a lesson on how one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. There are examples on how to recycle, reuse, donate, compost, and respect nature and wildlife. Oscar uses a cracked fish tank for his pet worm, Slimey. Bert uses an old egg carton for his bottle cap collection. It’s a really cute book.
If you wanted to be even greener, you can purchase Grouches are Green for your Kindle. I must admit, I’m still the old fashioned book-in-hand type. Especially for babies, I prefer the tactile practice of holding a book and reading and looking at pictures. But, I recognize the space/money/environmental aspects of a Kindle.
Don’t miss out on this adorable opportunity to educate your babies on the basics of living green. The Sesame Street characters make the lesson an easy sell!
