Eco Friendly Kids Book Review & Giveaway

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you will know that I am passionate about living a green (ish) lifestyle. We eat mostly organic items, recently purchased a hybrid vehicle, recycle, etc. So when I was asked to review an eco friendly kids book, I was thrilled!

Bayou Bennett wrote The Nutria Frog Kingdom & was gracious enough to send me a copy of the book along with the accompanying CD. The book is about two kids, Randy & Tina, who go on an adventure in the swamps of Louisiana. They meet King Leo & he tells them about the nutria frogs & how they are at risk of disappearing because the environment is a mess. The kids realize that they have the ability to help & get their entire town to help plant trees, recycle, pick up trash, & more.

My daughter loved the idea of kids being able to make a difference. I loved how it reinforced the notion that little things can add up to a huge impact.

The CD of music by southern musician, Washboard Leo Thomas is a great bonus as well! It's fun to listen to & my daughter was pretending to tap dance to it in the back seat of our car. Listening to the CD in your car is a great way to bring up the concept of not littering, recycling, etc. when you aren't sitting reading the book. In my opinion, anything that gives adults another opportunity to discuss the subject with kids is great. I have a feeling my daughter will be pointing out every piece of trash on the ground on her way to school for the next few weeks!

Ms. Bennett is offering up a copy of The Nutria Frog Kingdom & the CD to one lucky BMIM winner. Here's how to enter:
