Each book tells a story that centers around children and their parents, as together they learn the value of conserving Earth's natural resources to help keep the planet green. Following each story, a four-page section suggests children's activities that relate to the book's central theme. A final two-page spread offers a guide for parents, with suggestions on how to use the concepts in the book to keep children aware of environmental issues. Color illustrations on every page.
