Books on Environment for Children



From a very young age, children need to be taught to take care of the planet they live on. I had shared a few tips to teach children to protect the environment . Children love listening to stories. Another excellent way to teach children about the environment is to read books to them about the environment, earth , recycling and how to conserve it. When they see pictures, they understand better.

Sharing a few books on how to conserve the environment for children up to the age of 8 years.
