Our family has always been very conscious about environmental issues. Since my son at 22 is well beyond the age for this book's focus, I purchased it (and read it first!) for a brother and sister who I thought could benefit from the focus on how we each impact our environment. Emily writes in a tone that doesn't talk down to kids, but which is age appropriate. One of the things I like about the book is that it can be read by a parent or older sibling to kids as young as 4-7, but can also be read and enjoyed by kids in the 8-10 range. One of the author's goals seems to be getting kids outside and exploring (and enjoying) nature. If this book helps your kids understand that there is more to life than video games, movies and TV, I think it would be money well spent. We need to get our kids outside - creating their own games and discovering their own adventures!

We love Coco and Dean: Explorers of the World in our house! It is in the regular roster of bedtime stories my daughter chooses. This book is such a great introduction to environmental awareness for children. I love that the tone emphasizes a child’s sense of wonder and love of the world around them as their inspiration to care for their environment. There is no condescension, just inspiration. These fun, short, easy to read stories have already sparked great discussions with my child about environmental topics at a level she can understand. We’ve also thoroughly enjoyed the unique illustrations. My 4 year old is probably a little younger than the target age range for these books, but she is still able to thoroughly enjoy Coco and Dean’s adventures and learn about caring for our environment at a beginner’s level. I think this book will make excellent children’s birthday gifts and teacher’s gifts. I look forward to more in depth conversations with my child facilitated by these stories, and I hope there will be more Coco and Dean adventures to come in the future!

Loved these cute stories of Coco and Dean as they learn how to take care of their world. It really kept both my daughters' interest, even causing them to ask deeper questions about landfills and recycling and how they can make a difference. I highly recommend!

My kids loved this book and I do too. Although there is a wealth of literature available for adults about environmental awareness, I have seen very little for children. CoCo and Dean: Explorers of the World helps to fill this void. CoCo and Dean are likeable and relatable characters making discoveries about the environment and taking our child readers on those adventures with them. The messages being conveyed about the importance of being environmentally responsible are easy to understand, and we are even given the gift of experiencing CoCo and Dean’s emotional journeys as they realize hard truths about how we have treated our planet thus far. We purchased several copies of this book during pre-sale and have been giving them as birthday gifts at children’s parties. The gifts have been very popular with the kids and with the parents, too!

Finally! A kids book that has an environmental preservation message and then challenges the reader with questions to think about these issues further. Coco and Dean are two playful kids that instantly draw the young reader to their adventure and therefore relating to their view of the environment is a natural part of the story. I appreciated the questions at the end of each story as my children where challenged to think about how the story related to their own experiences and they, in turn, asked me some good questions. This is a good family book.

Coco & Dean Explorers of the World takes young readers on three amazing adventures, from your own backyard to exotic destinations. While the characters discover the world around them, they also learn to be aware of environmental issues. Think Like a Cardinal teaches children to be aware of their carbon footprint. "Take only what we need and use what we take..." Conquering Rabbit Hill sheds light on the topic of trash and encourages us all to reduce, reuse and recycle. In Vacation Vortex the characters discover the effects of pollution in our oceans. The Explore with Coco & Dean section at the end of each story provides helpful resources for kids (and adults) to learn more about the environmental topics discussed and to take action. Coco & Dean is a well-crafted and thought provoking read for the next generation of environmentalists!

I bought this as a gift for my niece and nephew. It's about time we have books that speak so well to this subject at such an early age. My son is a rising junior at Chapel Hill studying Environmental Science. Fortunately we were able to communicate these important points "pre-Emily's book". This is a great teaching moment on the environment with your little ones. I think it will be a nice segue into what they will experience and learn in school. It sure is nice to talk about the environment when so many computer games are being pumped our way these days. Thank you Emily!

There is no doubt about it Emily Scofield hit it out of the park with CoCo and Dean. What a great way to relate the Built Environment to Children. Written in story form it challenges parents and children to be good Stewards of the Environment as they travel along with CoCo and Dean all over the World. Easy reading and great study questions throughout the book. Making it fun reading at home or a good teaching tool in the classroom.

I highly recommend it ........and even Mom and Dad can learn a thing or two about saving the planet...Bought two for my Grandchildren to get in touch with being Green as they Grow !
