Abstract: This paper describes a software suite aiming at the sensitization of children to environmental themes such as materials use and recycling. The software, in the form of an interactive book, by means of the famous ”‘Three little pigs”’ story introduces the handled themes which are treated more in detail through some knowledge improvement scenes extending the main story. The suite is completed by some games which verify the users understanding of the treated themes. The developed software is usable both as a stand alone software both via Internet embedded in a web page. Tests of the suite have been performed on a group of primary school students and proved the efficiency of the software, its high interactivity level and an encouraging comprehension of the treated themes by the users and suggested the authors the future developments.
