When you tuck your children in at night and read to them, you’ll have additional peace of mind knowing that the children’s books you choose are from a green publisher that wholeheartedly supports their future. The Eco Seekers, founded by a brother and sister in 2006, is just such a publishing company.

The Eco Seekers provide transparent information about how they specifically integrate environmental considerations, which include using post-consumer recycled paper, chlorine-free and acid-free paper, soy-based inks, FSC-certified paper, and manufacture in the USA. Even their office furniture is made with reclaimed wood, and wind energy offsets are used for the manufacturing process. The Green Press Initiative, IBPA and Green Business Network all count the Eco Seekers as a member.

So, you may be wondering, how are the books? The Land of Curiosities: Adventures in Yellowstone, 1872-1873 by Deanna Neil is captivating and full of historical adventure set amid the Yellowstone wilderness. Recommended for children ages 8-15 years, this book is not only thoroughly “green,’ but engaging and educational, too.

Its sequel, The Land of Curiosities, Lost in Yellowstone, will be released on Earth Day, the 22nd of this month. Find it at various retailers or at

While your children thrill to adventures in Yellowstone, you’ll be equally thrilled knowing that you’re supporting the environmental movement. Both Eco Seeker books to date have garnered awards, including the Benjamin Franklin, Mom’s Choice, and Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards. Help usher in a thoughtful new era in publishing by supporting the Eco Seekers.
