Children's Earth Day Book List

This post contains affiliate links.


Tomorrow is Earth Day, so I came up with this fun list of Earth Day themed children's books!  There are so many fun books that are all about protecting the planet and going green.  One of my favorites is the Dr. Seuss book The Lorax.  When the movie came out, I HAD to take my baby girl and a friend to see it--but I may have wanted to see it more than both of them!
