Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
This brightly-illustrated and simply-told lift-the-flap paperback describes all the "green" things that even the youngest conservationists can do to help the earth. The focus is on small things that can be done daily at school, in the home, around the yard and garden…and, as we all know, small things done by many small hands can make a big difference! Printed in soy ink and joyfully illustrated with imaginative collages made with recycled paper and fabric scraps featuring an effective mix of patterns and textures, this book really walks the "walks the walk" when it comes to being "green." The lift-the-flap feature is an effective way to show exactly how broad ideas, such as "I can recycle" translates to specific actions or items. For example, in this spread, kids can lift the flap covering the recycling bin to reveal cardboard, newsprint, magazine, and wrapping paper scraps inside—all the sorts of things a typical household would recycle. The message is clear: working together, kids and grownups can save the world. Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
