In addition to the reviews and giveaways, we here at THOUGHTS ON THIS ‘n THAT, are adding something extra!

For all the moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grand-parents, teachers, educators who follow our blog, and might be interested in something special for the kids in their lives to read, we’re introducing THE GREEN KIDS CLUB.

What is the Green Kids Club?

The Green Kids Club is designed to teach young children ( 5-9, 6-7, 8-11) the importance of environmental stewardship through picture books. The series was developed to teach children the importance of protecting habitats, to sustain ecosystems, animal and ultimately human life. Difficult environmental issues such as poaching, habitat, encroachment, etc. are part of our stories.

 Victor, Maya and Tiago are the main characters in our Green Kids Club Series.



Our first story, The Green Spring, is targeted at kids 5-9. The children receive the power to talk to animals by drinking water from a magic spring. In this story, the Grand Council of animals select Victor and Maya to drink water from this spring and from then on, help preserve and protect our planet Earth.

Kids from all over the world also end up drinking water from the Green Spring and together they help Victor and Maya teach others to protect the animals and their homes. The  adventures take them all over the world, exploring new cultures and learning about protecting and preserving the environment and the animals that depend on them.


For a chance to win a copy of THE GREEN SPRING, tell us what you do to be “green.”  Just leave a comment and we’ll announce a winner next week.



We encourage you to check out the listed links to see what environmental books and toys are available:             @greenclubskids 

We’ll be giving away another book in the series next Wednesday.

  1. We have several friends who come up to our land and dump their compost on our compost pile. We also take a bucket to church and when they cook in the kitchen they throw their compost in and then hubby brings it home and dumps it and we take back a clean bucket. Our 20 acres are a “No Hunting Anything” I mean from rabbits and deer and stray cats are all safe. We have a bucket on our counter that we throw anything that is compostable in and have been doing for years. I save all rubber bands the postman leaves and reuse them all. We take the paper from the shredder and put it around our garden. My husbands work they bring up truck fulls of dirt and lime stone and then my husband uses around our land instead of it just going somewhere and sitting. We take all cans and plastic bottles and throw them down a shoot and during the time my husband is laid off to pay for my meds he recycles all of it at the local recycle yard. He throws all metal of any kind and anything outside that can be taken apart and taken to somewhere to recycle he and my step son do that. All food scraps that can be eaten by the stray cats i take and feed them that. I boil the bones from the chicken that we are done eating and take the meat left and give it to the cats. No food scraps go in the garbage. We have been doing all of this for at least 14 years since i have been living and married with hubby here in Iowa


  2. Love the idea. I no longer have kids in the targeted age group, so no need to count me, but this is a wonderful series.

    I reduce, reuse, and recycle whenever possible.



  3. This is a great idea for those of us with little ones, grands or great grands, running around. I do what I can to recycle, reuse, and repurpose. It all counts!
