Save The Tree!- Giveaway

I never allowed Ella to get into Nick Jr. until a couple of months ago. I let her watch the Disney channel, but Toodles started to drive me nuts since we obviously don't have a mouse head flying around to solve all of our problems. What got Ella hooked on Nick Jr. was the Wonder Pets. Other than Ming-Ming's lisp, I really like the show as well. I truly hated Ella running around saying, "this is seriweeous" when she could very well say serious. But I like the idea of team work and helping our friends. So it's something I've gotten over. Ella loves the show, so I knew she would love the Little Green Books, Nickelodeon's The Big Green Help book- Wonder Pets Save the Tree!
When I've done reviews for Little Green Books in the past, I've always overlooked Nickelodeon's The Big Green Help books since Ella didn't know the characters. They have eco-friendly books dedicated to SpongeBob, Dora the Explorer, Blues Clues, Diego, and the Wonder Pets. This is a great idea for children who are into the Nick characters and will allow them to be open to the "green" message. Especially if it's their favorite character teaching them the lessons! Each book is like the other Little Green Books and are printed on recycled paper with 100% vegetable inks. They are vibrant colors and the illustrations are just as clear as on the show.

Wonder Pets Save the Tree! is based on the 2006 episode that won the Environmental Media Award for Children's Animated Television. The story is about the Wonder Pets going to save a little tree in a dirty lot. They arrive in a city lot that is filled with lots of trash. They all work together to clean up the lot, but the tree's leaves start to fall. The Wonder Pets then call in for reinforcements and other animals come to help save the day. By using team work they plant a whole garden and save the tree. Very cute, short, and to the point. It was seriously like watching an episode!

I love at the beginning of the book there are great ideas on how children can help save trees. I remember my mom always telling me not to waste paper, but I never understood why. I like that it has Ming-Ming leaving the message so it really does reach out and touch your child. Ella caught on to the message and has been asking to water the plants every time we are outside. And she uses both sides of her paper while drawing and then asks to recycle it.
