The Little Environmentalists Get Animated|
Children’s Book Company Teams Up with Kevin and Kristen Collier To Create A New, Illustrated Version of Their Eco-Adventure Book
Hartland, WI (January 29, 2009)– The Little Environmentalists, together with famous children’s authors
and illustrators Kevin Scott Collier and Kristen Collier, have created a revised edition of the book I'm
Turning Green titled Go Green With Me.
This beautifully illustrated version will follow a young girl on her journey to become green. Go Green
With Me will have the same great message as I’m Turning Green, with refreshing new text by Rebecca
Mattano and Kristen Collier, and whimsical imagery by awardwinning
illustrator Kevin Scott Collier.
Mattano, creator and author of The Little Environmentalists, wanted to use illustrations in Go Green With Me instead of the watercolor filtered photography used in previous books, in hopes of reaching children in a different way. “Our books carry important messages for preschoolers,” said Mattano. “So, it is
important that we work to discover what they prefer. That way, we can give parents and grandparents the tools they need to develop the next generation of environmental stewards.”
Award-winning husband and wife team, Kevin Scott Collier and Kristen Collier, have written or illustrated over 80 books. Their experience working with publishing companies of all sizes combined with their passion for the message of Go Green With Me, made them an ideal partner for this project.
The book, like the rest in The Little Environmentalists Series, is designed for pre-readers and emerging
readers. Found in the back of the book is an Earth Notes section full of simple steps that families and
classrooms can incorporate to conserve water, energy and other natural resources.
Go Green With Me is scheduled to be released this March.
