I have a few other book in this series and this is my most recent purchase. The book is a tad warped, no big deal, I appreciate the recycled aspect. At the end of the book, two previous pages from the beginning repeat itself. Not sure what pages should have been there instead but I'm kind of bummed to miss the end pages. My daughter is too young to notice for now.

Children today are keenly aware of environmental issues, of the virtue and value of 'living green'. To that point, Innovative Kids has newly published a four titles series of environmentally friendly board books for preschool children ages 3 to 6 that are printed on 98% recycled paper and utilize soy-based inks exclusively. The simply 'kid friendly' stories written by Leslie Bockol are very nicely illustrated by Jillian Phillips and include "Baby Animals"; "In The Garden"; "The Five Senses"; and "One Tree". Each little 'kid sized' book includes a 'Parent Page' with easy, everyday, thematically appropriate tips on protecting endangered animals, gardening tips and recipes, keeping nature beautiful, and protecting the forests. Although each titles is available separately, families, schools, day-care centers, and community libraries should acquire all four titles in this outstanding series for the benefit of young, environmentally aware kids -- and the parents who are seeking to instill those values in their children.

I love these books as a cute learning resource for my 2-year old daughter. This book in particular doesn't really hold her attention very much anymore, but as with any toy/book, all things lose their novelty. I am tempted to order another one just to see if it sparks new interest or if she's just not a fan.
