Publisher: New Year Publishing LLC | Publication Date: November, 2010


Giggles the Green Bean Turns Stinkytown into Greentown is the first book in the Giggles the Green Bean series. In this fun story the young reader will learn the 5 special secrets Giggles learns in order to turn Stinkytown back into Greentown. Giggles teaches kids important green concepts and skills including recycling, water conservation, healthy eating, and energy conservation using tangible, real-world examples that even the youngest readers will be able to adopt and discuss with family and friends.

My Review:

I read this book to Savannah on Earth Day, and then again this past weekend on vacation.  We both loved the cute illustrations of the Giggles the Green Bean.  Children follow along as Giggles the Green Bean learns 5 environmentally friendly tips that will turn Stinkytown into Greentown.  What a great way to teach your child about helping to protect and keep our environment and planet clean.  In addition to the book, parents can log online with their children for more interactive FREE fun.  Through the Giggles website, they can download word search puzzles, games, coloring sheets and more.  These FREE activities would be a great way to keep your child occupied on summer car trips, rainy days or at a restaurant.
