Children's Books featured in Green Books campaign

Today, several bloggers, including myself, are taking part in Eco-Libris Green Books campaign. The campaign promotes “green” books, specifically books printed on recycled paper or FSC-certified paper. According to Raz Godelnik, co-founder and CEO of Eco-Libris, “Very few books are currently printed responsibly and we hope this initiative will bring more exposure to “green” books. Through this campaign we want to encourage publishers to get greener and readers to take the environment into consideration when purchasing books.” (Image designed by Susan Newman)

While of list of links to all participating blogs is available at Eco-Libris website (www.ecolibris.net/greenbookscampaign.asp), I thought that my readers might be interested in hearing specifically about the children's books reviews.
