Read the traditional nursery rhyme Itsy Bitsy Spider first, then enjoy a fun new rhyme. Can you make up a rhyme of your own?

Paperback, 24 pages, Reading Level: Gr. K-1, Tadpoles Series – “Engaging illustrations highlight simple stories that repeat words and phrases to help build reading skills.”

This easy reader book teaches rhyme. The original version is followed by another version of the same style. Good illustrations. I like this one!

 

Natural resources on Earth are at risk of running out. Using too many natural resources, such as water, trees, and fossil fuels, is putting pressure on our supplies and damaging the environment. Discover the facts about how resources are used around the world, which resources are renewable and non-renewable, and what the future of natural resource management looks like.

Paperback, 32 pages, Reading Level: Gr. 5, Eco Facts Series – “vividly illustrated guides to the environmental challenges affecting our planet. Each book explores real-life examples of environmental threats, disasters, and solutions. Young readers will discover fascinating facts and statistics and learn some simple ways they can make a difference.”

This book has plenty of illustrations and photos on every page and the text is neatly organized and interesting. It’s helpful that it includes a table of contents, glossary and index. Crabtree Publishing’s website says there is a free downloadable teacher’s guide for this book but I don’t see it listed with the other teacher support materials accessible from their home page.

Crabtree Publishing Company is dedicated to producing high-quality books and educational products for K-9+.

Eco. Pure. Simple. That’s why I love Earth Creations! I’ve featured them on the blog many times & today’s feature is for the Yatch Pullover.
Yacht Pullover
This fun style can be used for many occasions. I think it makes a cute cover-up. It’s available in five colors. Peacock blue is the color I have this in and I like that it is bright but also relaxing.
The fabric (50% poly / 37% cotton / 13% rayon sweater slub) is flattering and very soft. Sizing is accurate. Earth Creations is always a win シ

A wonderful product for overall well- being. 

Find the animal eye pillow that’s right for you. There are numerous animals to choose from and in different colors, too. They each have a unique selection of 100% certified organically grown herbs. (And then there are the names. That’s something I’ll let you check out yourself)

abra k' zebra 12" eyepillow

the magician. 
Abra K’ Zebra is filled with lavender, linden flower and chamomile. Lavender, originally a Mediterranean shrub cultivated for its aromatic flowers is one of the queens of herbs. It relieves nervous tension, headaches and insomnia.  Linden flower is used to soothe the nerves–we love its mild, flowery scent.  Chamomile is a yellow daisy-like flower with a fruity aroma. The Egyptians used in massage oils for relieving aching muscles and as a tea it helps with insomnia and nervous tension.

 

Each are 12″ and are filled with flax seed and sewn with organic cotton. I like the size and the weight gives just the right amount of pressure on the forehead and around the eyes. The animal’s arms and legs can be positioned a bit and the main body section is narrow enough that it fits over the nose comfortably. They can also be put in a nightshirt to keep them cleaner and for FUN.

do not disturb

 

This is an eco friendly and drug free way to relax that’s good for any age. I find it helpful before bed and for a few minutes during the day when my eyes get super tired. If they could come up with a travel style (for use while sitting up) that would be terrific.  

Made in the USA. Purchases help those at Herbal Animals to donate to organizations including Feed the Children, The Humane Society, and Save the Children to help children and animals lead happier lives.

YOGO

YOGO

YOGO produces eco-friendly, compact travel yoga gear. Our mission is to create greater convenience, performance and sustainability in yoga through better design. For every mat sold we plant a food tree with an impoverished family, providing food, livelihood and restoration.

YOGO ULTRALIGHT TRAVEL YOGA MAT

 

Charcoal-Cayenne

Do you yoga?
Here’s a yoga mat that makes a great travel buddy weighing less than two pounds. (24x68x 1.5mm) It can be folded to a newspaper size mat by following the folding instructions. Folding keeps it compact and it also keeps one side of the mat the clean side. To be fair, I’d like to mention that I can fold my manduka mat in a manner that keeps one side clean, too. 
 
It has a strap to allow it be be hung up for a wash and dry which is recommend every few uses to keep it clean and sticky. 
This is, of course, a natural eco mat “made with biodegradable natural tree rubber from renewable long-term non-Amazonian tree plantations. Their straps are recyclable plastic so that at the end of the mat’s life all of it can be recycled or biodegrade.” It does smell like natural rubber which I don’t mind.
Available in several color choices to take yoga anywhere.
Shanti.

Image result for naked binder logo image

 Serious, but Fun.

Naked Binder’s mission is to create the most sustainable office supplies by offering an eco-friendly alternative to the toxic options on the market. We believe that a 3-ring binder may not be able to save the world, but they can reduce the toxic waste that must be landfilled and keep your office and home air better.

Hooray- I’ve used these before and recommend them for school, office, and home use. There are several styles of Naked Binders in various sizes to suit your style or need. The papers and board are acid free. They also sell folders and tabs. 

Boohoo-They are not found in stores and so would have to be purchased online. The inside D rings are a bit clunky. I prefer smooth and quiet.

 

Naked Binders are available in several styles and sizes. My favorite binder is the little plain one (bare board) and the one that I still have in good working condition. (5 years now)

A discount is offered for materials used in the line of work for educators, teachers, and schools. I asked and this discount applies to home school teachers.

See how it works:

 

It’s Eco-wonderful. It’s your grill’s new BFF.

It’s THE ULTIMATE BBQ CLEANING TOOL.

Made in Wisconsin. 100% hardwood.

Four years ago I tried The Woody Paddle. It has proved to be a tough, useful grilling accessory. Don’t let this worn looking paddle lead you believe it’s outlived it’s purpose. It still rocks!

the old Woody Paddle & the new Woody Shovel 

two GROOVY grilling tools

“Each Great Scrape is already treated with a food safe mineral oil (butcher block oil). If the color begins to fade over time, reapply mineral oil as appropriate. We recommend storing it out of the elements.” (I admit: Our Woody Paddle was never treated to mineral oil and was frequently left to view the constellations.)

Get yours online @ the great scrape. Personalize it if you want. Follow them on Facebook; they have mouth-watering food pics, recipes & Great Scrape giveaways!

Protecting the planet was the inspiration for this adorable and
meaningful line of products. Our materials provide hope against
the deforestation and raging pollution that we are now
experiencing.

Loved by the most finicky of Earth’s creatures, From the Field pet toys
offer pet owners an opportunity to please their pets without hurting
their environment.

 

What they said – Love it !

And my kitty reviewer loved their Billy Bob the Cork Ball & Bella’s Blissful Hemp Pouch. Obviously this stuff is fresh because he could detect it was his before I even opened the box. And he was playing with both before I could open the packaging. The hemp pouch is filled with Silver Vine which is much like catnip. We’ve not heard of this before but kitty says “it’s all good”. 

The purr-fect place for cat toys and more. From the Field apparently provides quality products that are safe and fun for pets.

And treats the Earth with care (≚ᄌ≚)ℒℴѵℯ❤
