Best Review - Top 7 Children's Books about Pollution and the Environment


ost of us want our children to appreciate nature and the world around us. We want them to be environmentally conscious and know how to take care of our planet. We also hope that they will grow up understanding how the environment is affected by our actions.

How do we teach our children about the environment and the effect that pollution has on it?

It is important that parents discuss these topics with their children and one way to get the conversation started is to read books to them or, when they are old enough, give them age-appropriate books to read.

Below are some of my favorite books about the environment. They are appropriate for children in a variety of age groups and they are the perfect way to get the conversation started in your home!

They were all dead. Their little silver bodies floated on the surface of the creek. The fish were floating lifelessly in the stream. This book for 8 - 14 year old teens and preteens begins with the death of fish in a local stream and moves through all the possible reasons why the fish might have died ... as well as why the tiny, nearby town of Sleepy might have an abnormally large number of residents with cancer. Finally, one 15-year old boy decides to find out what is going on.

If we hope to pass on a beautiful planet to our children and grandchildren, we must make sure that we teach those same children and grandchildren how to take care of it.

Many people do not realize how fragile the world is. Nor are they aware that our actions have consequences. A plastic bottle thrown in a gutter miles from the ocean or a river, can be washed down the storm sewer, end up in a waterway miles away and even harm the sea life there.

Parents will appreciate the help that the above books will give them in getting the conversation started with their children. Teaching them about the environment is really teaching them to appreciate the world where they live.
