Jeanine Behr Getz visits Chapin School
[The students] could certainly follow the lead of the characters in Think Green!, who use recycled paper at school; don’t let the water run while brushing their teeth or washing their hands; compost food if they can; and take re-usable bags to the grocery store. The examples were readily absorbed by the students, who are already on their way to thinking green.

“Looking for a new book to share with your kids this Earth Day? Think Green! by Jeanine Behr Getz is a great new eco-book that teaches kids about all of the different ways they can help protect the planet.”

“One book that I have really enjoyed reading to my children is the book Think Green! by Jeanine Behr Getz. The book is bright, colorful and conceptually easy for my children to understand. The book has a personal feel with a character call Millicent introducing all of her friends and how they can act and think green. My son really loved this!”
Sherri Williams, TD Monthly
TDmonthly rating: 5 stars
What It Is: Millicent, the central character, is determined to make the world a better place. Her friends, on various missions to save electricity, conserve water, reduce waste and pollution, and participate in a number of other “green” projects, join her. Millicent’s main objective is to show kids that anyone can “think green” and make a difference.
Why You Should Carry It: The text and illustrations enhance one another, but moreover, the book is truly informative. It entertains but also educates. Best of all, kids won’t know they are being “taught.” This story is an ideal fit for home or school and provides examples of how kids can be responsible to the earth no matter their age. I recommend this book for public service agencies, as the content fits with most national environmental programs.
What Kids Think: In a third-grade class of about 20 students, the story brought excitement. Kids shared their personal “green” experiences; one child even suggested that schools give out the book at the start of the year as a “rule book” for how to keep things neat at school.

Robin McClure, About.com
“This stunningly-illustrated and child-friendly book is written by Jeanine Behr Getz in a way that encourages kids to feel proud of green efforts they are already doing as well as encouraging thinking of more earth-friendly solutions.”
