Little Kid Reaction

Our daughter laughed at many of the questions ... she liked the different interpretations (like feeling sick in the car) and loved the illustrations.

Big Kid Reaction

This is a fun, engaging way to not only help kids with global awareness, but also to show them what idioms are. I love the feel of these books and the simplicity with which they present complex ideas.

Pros:

Simple text combine with humor and great illustrations to help kids understand "green" in all its many forms.

Cons:

None.
