Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Summer Whiting
This is a timely read that will have readers seeing green. Did you know that many things around your house, like shampoo and face creams, often contain dangerous chemicals? Or that by using less energy we can slow down global warming? In the midst of these facts, you will find true or false quizzes, "I Don't Believe It" boxes of totally dubious facts, and even a recipe for an au natural foot soak! The photographs and illustrations bring the words to life; they are nothing short of astonishing. A table of contents and an index ensure that readers can find exactly what they are looking for quickly. This would make a great addition to the reading libraries of upper elementary classrooms and would complement energy and resources units. The information is concise and to the point. Reluctant readers will not be able to put this book down. Children will learn to be good stewards of our planet and will feel inspired to reduce, reuse and recycle! Reviewer: Summer Whiting
