As a mother of two young daughters I found Sammy and Sue to be a sweet and simple way to raise awareness of how we could together as a family live a more green life.
I love the idea that a mom and her daughter have created this together. My 7 year old is always talking about recycling and conserving water so she really enjoyed recognizing the lessons taught in the book as the very same they were discussing in class.

Format: Hardcover
"Sammy & Sue Go Green Too!" is a handy eco-educational book for kids ages 5-9 that contains plenty of earth-friendly tips and ideas and references for kids concerned with saving the environment and learning to live green. Winningly written in rhyme and filled with colorful illustrations of the eco-detecting mother and daughter team, "Sammy & Sue Go Green Too!" is part of a series that includes "Sammy & Sue's Green World," an "eco-friendly online Virtual World for Kids," as well as many other Sammy & Sue books. Plenty of helpful suggestions about ways to "go green" and improve our environmental caretaking are contained in "Sammy & Sue Go Green Too!" The book series is endorsed by a hefty list of eco-friendly companies, including Burt's Bees, Celestial Seasonings, Wild Zoofari, and more. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from every book is donated to Eco-Libris, "a green business that works with book readers, publishers, authors, bookstores, and others in the book industry to balance out the paper used for books by planting trees." "Sammy & Sue Go Green Too!" is the perfect tool to start a parent child dialogue on a great project, saving our planet!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Our family found this book charming and sweet and a perfect little read for boys and girls around ages 3 to 8. It is informative for kids in this age rage and the light rhyme scheme will keep them interested.

I went to a book signing and my 3 year-old and 5 year-old loved the story and the author. (they did not feel like they were being spoken to do or propagandized) No; it is not for older kids, it is not meant to be a children's book for the precocious. And sure, it is a little light on story... but small children love it (by the response at the signing we attended). I must admit that I never thought much of children's books; the idea, for me, was to get kids interested in reading and teach them new words and ideas. That being the case, this little book succeeds on both counts.

It also makes no excuses for its "agenda"; from what I have gathered, the entire ethos of this forthcoming series is supposed to be about teaching very young children about these very important issues (recycling, climate change, pollution, endangered animals etc.). We are looking forward to more books...and our family highly recommends it!

Format: Hardcover
As an educator, I feel this book would be very useful in the classroom when opening a discussion about the evironment, Earth Day or healthy lifestyles. Yes, some of the rhyming attempts are a stretch. But, let's face it: Preschoolers through 1st Graders love flowing text with rhymes and Geisel simply made up words to achieve this effect. I could also spend at least 5 minutes a page pointing out and eliciting discussion about the earth-friendly items depicted in the illustrations. The older children would enjoy referring to the one-page glossary showing all the new words they are exposed to in this book. The book seems to purposefully not be a "story." It looks more like an attempt at using kid-friendly text and illustrations and to convey an important message that is very adult-like in nature and in vocabulary. There isn't a book out there that can foster eco-friendly children without our help. This book is a great way to encourage the type of conversation we should be having with our young ones.

As the mom of a 5 1/2 year old, Sammy and Sue was a wonderful introduction for my daughter to learn the basics of being environmentally conscious. Because of the colorful illustrations along with the rhyming text, she found the book engaging and would repeatedly ask that i read it over and over again. She also enjoyed carrying it everywhere with her.
