Books can change the world. They can teach, inspire, and inform in ways that nothing else can. Movies may try—podcasts, too—but there is nothing more impactful than when a reader COMPLETELY invests in a book and is changed by its story. Even the littlest readers can be inspired by them, too. So I have compiled a list of beautifully written, motivational Earth Day Books that celebrate all things nature related and will help raise a new generation of environmentally conscious kids. And if you head over to my Instagram account, you can enter my Earth Day Book Giveaway for a chance to add these eco-friendly titles to your family’s bookshelf.
