e-bookHappy Earth Day, everyone! Here at school, we are having a book exchange where students can bring in an old book and swap it for a new one. We’re also having a litter-free lunch day and asking students and staff to bring all their lunches and snacks in reusable containers.

And we’re not the only ones celebrating Earth Day here—the Kindle Daily Deal features four kids books in honor of Earth Day. But it does not feature any adult choices. So with that in mind, I scoured the Kindle store in search of Earth-themed goodies.

Happy reading!


e-bookNo Impact Man by Colin Beavan | The author, his wife and child lived for a year in New York City, endeavoring to create no impact on the environment whatsoever.

Cooking with Trader Joe’s Cookbook by Kelly Lester | This is a personal favorite; a great cookbook written by the creator of my favorite lunch container.

e-bookThe 100-Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating by Alisa Smith and J.B. Mackinnon | The authors attempt to only eat foods that can be grown or farmed within 100 miles of their home.

Plastic Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and You Can Too by Beth Terry | This well-known blogger gave up plastic and chronicles it all in this intriguing-looking book.

"I’m a journalist, a teacher and an e-book fiend. I work as a French teacher at a K-3 private school. I use drama, music, puppets, props and all manner of tech in my job, and I love it. I enjoy moving between all the classes and having a relationship with each child in the school. Kids are hilarious, and I enjoy watching them grow and learn. My current device of choice for reading is my Amazon Kindle Touch, but I have owned or used devices by Sony, Kobo, Aluratek and others. I also read on my tablet devices using the Kindle app, and I enjoy synching between them, so that I’m always up to date no matter where I am or what I have with me."
