Green Reading for Read Across America Day

Today is Read Across America Day which is celebrated every year on the anniversary of Dr. Suess' birthday. Dr. Suess was a tree hugger, you know. 

In honor of Dr. Suess, who we love in our house, I've compiled a list of some of the books that I've read that have something to do with being green. Maybe you'll find something here to read. There may be better books out there - I've got a whole list of ones I want to read, but these are the ones I've read that have inspired me.

  • The Lorax - Dr. Suess - a classic
  • Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year: A Year of Food Life - Barbara Kingsolver - lots of great inspiration about organic food, the local food movement, and lots of information about how the growing of food works (or doesn't work) in our country
  • How to Rescue the Earth without Worshipping Creation - Tony Campolo - A Christian perspective on why we should care for creation
  • Silent Spring - Rachel Carson - this 1962 book is given credit for starting the environmental movement in the US
Even if you choose not to read something about green today, read something. And if you've got children read to them tonight (especially if you've got The Lorax).
