About Green Kids Club Green Kids Club is designed to teach young children the importance of environmental stewardship through picture books. The series was developed as a utility to teach children the importance of protecting habitats to sustain ecosystems, animal life and ultimately human life. Difficult environmental issues that impact animals and human interaction are brought into the story lines as well like habitat encroachment, poaching and extinction.
In particular, the story features kid characters Victor and Maya Green as the leaders of the Green Kids Club. Both were granted the power to talk to species by the Grand Council of Animals and received their power by being allowed to drink from The Magic Spring. The Grand Council selected Victor and Maya to help preserve and protect their homes. Now Green Kids from all over the world are selected to help Victor and Maya teach others about the importance of protecting animals. Their adventures take them all over the globe, exploring new cultures and learning about protecting and preserving the environment and the animals that depend on them.
Green Kids Club also focuses on environmental sustainability, mitigation and preservation to protect animals and their habitats.
