I’m loving reading to Bella for our bedtime routine every night – and wanted to share this book with all of you, called The Greenyz
. The vivid colors, the fact that it’s got an eco-friendly message, and is made in an eco-friendly manner, with FSC/SFI/PEFC certified paper and board with soy based inks is all part of the reason I love it. The book and toys debuted in FAO Schwartz and on FAO.com April 5.
book is a heartwarming tale that teaches the concept of environmental conservation, or “green” living. In this introductory story, the Greenzys meet Orinda, the world’s oldest living tree. When they discover she’s in trouble, they agree to help her – but not before they learn the importance of being green.
Written by acclaimed children’s writer Danielle Mentzer, “The Greenzys” is illustrated by the award winning artist, Cris De Lara. The book is printed in The United States, which also reduces the carbon footprint.
The Greenyz also come with adorable stuffed animals to go along with the book. Bella got the Panda, Yew Yew.
Also, win 5oz of Doctor T’s dry-touch SPF 30 UVA and UVB photostable lotion with Avobenzone in a refillable trigger spray bottle. Very Water Resistant with Vitamins A, C & E.

This stuff applies easily and is great for those times when your child is outside and wants to play – not sit still for sunscreen. I got the squeezable stuff so I didn’t get to try out the spray, but it wouldn’t have worked for Bella anyway. I liked that I was able to put a small amount on her face and arms when we were out on the grass or visiting family. It wasn’t slimy or sticky, just a smooth formula.
When I was a nanny, sprayable sunscreen was my favorite – kids never wanted to hold still, have me accidently poke them in the eye with a sunscreen covered finger, or have their face rubbed as I tried to get it on their nose, cheeks, chin. So this stuff was amazing. Check out her site for a lot more natural products for baby, toddler, and beyond. Maybe even something for you!
