Join kids from all over the world in learning about the earth and its citizens, both human and animal kind. Quiz yourself on your animal knowledge, have fun reading and playing games, and challenge yourself to help our planet! Along the way you can earn points and rewards, too.
You are! But you can follow along in the worldwide adventures of boys and girls in our books, too. Maya, Victor, and Tiago are siblings that can talk to animals. In their travels around the globe, they meet all kinds of people and animals that need their help.
This month, think about and act for these animals on their special day. From weather-predicting underground rodents to ocean-dwelling gentle giants, there's an animal for everyone in February!

Groundhog Day - February 2
National Hippo Day - February 15
World Whale Day - February 16

Every month the Green Kids Club will be issuing a challenge to all Green Kids Clubbers to help the earth. This month's challenge:
Everything that is plugged into a wall or that runs on batteries uses energy. Energy usage is a necessary part of life, especially in the winter, but it can be rough on the environment in many ways like the search for new energy sources, industrial production of energy, and the waste of used batteries. If we can all keep our energy usage in mind and think about ways we could reduce our impact, the world would be better for it. Do we really need to raise the heat inside a few more degrees or could we put on a sweater or use a blanket? Could we use more sustainable alternatives (solar power, rechargeable batteries, ride a bike or use public transportation)? Did we remember to turn off all the lights when we left? Take some time to evaluate your energy usage. Simple changes that become good habits can multiply benefits!
