Toy Thursday - Eco Books

I am a sucker for books that help teach my kids values about the environment. Last week we were at Winners and found a book called "My Bag and Me!" by Karen Farmer. It's a great board book that tells the story of a little boy going on a shopping trip with his reusable bag. The book even comes with a little reusable bag for your child.

To top it off, the book and the bag are 100% recyclable after your child destroys it :-)

I am assuming we will give it to another child in 5 years or so when our little one is done with it instead of recycling it.

This book is rapidly becoming one of our favorites.

I dunno about favorites; there's a lot of good books out there, and this one's trying too hard to have a message to really crack the best of the best, but it's cute, and gets the point across.

What a neat idea. I will have to take a look at that book. I am always trying to be eco friendly but to get the kids involved - that's awesome!
