Think Green! is more than a book about the environment — it is the 1st children’s illustrated book with its own eco audit. Think Green! is a book for our youngest generation about children thinking and acting green everyday to help keep our earth clean and safe for all people, animals, fish and birds and includes a page to write and draw in new green ideas and characters.
Think Green! is the winner of the Creative Child Magazine 2009 Preferred Choice Award and has been recognized with a bronze by the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards in their environmental issues category.
Author Jeanine Behr Getz was awarded the Garden Club of America’s 2009 Club Conservation Award, “in recognition of [her] exceptional efforts in the field of Conservation, and for using them so creatively to teach a new generation to be green!” In addition, Jeanine was named a Connecticut Green Woman by CT Green Scene, and Kids Think Big has received a Green Coast Award.
