And the winner in the "Polar Bears' Home" giveaway is...

Thank you for all the participants in our Little Green Books giveaway following our review of "The Polar Bears' Home: A Story About Global Warming" by Lara Bergen last Monday.

We got many comments about the tone preferred for children's books on environmental issues and I think we had a very interesting discussion here. If I try to summarize it I would say that most of the readers are in favor for a lighter tone at a younger age and a more realistic one when the kids are more grown up.

And the winner in our giveaway is treen berg, who wrote the following:

Thx for the links at the end of this post :). So you won't like my answer, but I prefer a lighter tone for my toddlers and young-uns who are eating up everything in life quietly, but when they get a bit older I'd like to read more books to them that offer more realism. Books are so powerful, story-telling to teach important topics will always have the attention of a child. I love reading lesson/moral teaching books to my kiddos and talking about matter how small the discussion! :)

Congrats treen! You will receive all of the four books published so far in the Little Green Books line: Little Panda, Little Monkey, I Can Save the Earth!: One Little Monster Learns to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle and The Polar Bears' Home: A Story About Global Warming.

And thanks again to Simon and Schuster Children's Publishing for giving this great prize!
