Baby Loves Green Energy!
Big, brainy science for the littlest listeners
Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby, this clever board book explores the climate of our planet and the need to protect it for all babies. Beautiful, visually stimulating illustrations complement age-appropriate language to encourage baby's sense of wonder. Parents and caregivers may learn a thing or two as well!

Awards & Honors:
In this addition to the Baby Loves Science board book series, Spiro uses a familiar reference to create a global warming analogy: "Baby has a blanket...When Baby puts the planet on, she feels warm...The earth has a blanket, too. Just like Baby! The earth's blanket is air." Chan illustrates in cheerful images, including a smiling, anthropomorphic Earth; the baby, who has blue-black hair and a serene expression, shows concern as she learns that greenhouse gases are making the Earth too hot under its blanket. A spread shows vehicles and factories puffing out cloudy emissions, leading to the question "How can people help?" Chan suggests green energy options with images of wind turbines and solar panels, and lists tips for how family members of all ages can help the Earth (turning out lights, recycling). A timely primer for early ecologists.
