Reviews - What do customers think about When Santa Turned Green?
Liberal crap pushing an agenda in a weak story. Jan 15, 2010
Poor effort at a Christmas book. Pushes the "green" agenda so much that the story is lost and one feels like they are attending a school lecture.
A Must Have! Jan 29, 2009
What a FANTASTIC way to teach kids about Global Warming!
Great pics - especially the page with all Santa's suits hanging in the closet - a ton of green ones and 1 red one.
Terrific tips for conserving energy and helping the planet.
We loaned ours around the neighbourhood and had kids write their comments in the cover.
Fabulous Book Jan 5, 2009
Our 3'rd grade son loves this book, especially with the hand puppet. It is one of a very few that he willingly reads aloud. The story provides an environmental twist to a familiar story.
re-order Oct 24, 2008
I purchased this book three weeks ago for my two older grandchildren - ages 5 and 3. After reading it, I re-ordered it for my 2 year old grandson and another copy for a friend's pre school children. I am a retired pre school teacher ( with a degree in literature) and was in charge of the school library selections. This book is on target with the current global situation - a great way to get children involved in their future. I showed the book to several of my teacher friends and they were impressed.

This is a fun little book that puts a new twist on teaching kids how to care for the environment. It reiterates that they are our future, and the decisions they make can change the world.
