Think Green Booksigning and Reading May 10 at Greenwich Audubon Society

Who's my idol of the day?? Jeanine Behr-Getz of Greenwich. I read about her in the Stamford Advocate a few weeks back and spoke to her this morning about all she's doing to show kids the importance of caring for the environment. Her new book (that she published herself on recycled paper) Think Green was inspired by her 4 year old daughter and it's the simple story of a little girl and her friends who are trying their best to be eco-aware. According to Jeanine, the story is really resonating with kids. She's doing a "book tour" through several schools and you can also catch her on Saturday, May 10th for a booksigning and reading at the Greenwich Audubon Society.

In addition to the book, Jeanine started a company, along with illustrator Jenny Nightingale, called Kids Think Big. Their mission is to bring big ideas to children, via eco-friendly print and electronic media, and empower them with knowledge at every age.

The book is available through the Kids Think Big Web site (www.kidsthinkbig.com), at Graham's Kid's Cuts in Greenwich and at the Greenwich Audubon Society. Please contact Jeanine at jeanine@kidsthinkbig.com if you're interested in her doing a reading at your child's school.
