Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristy Lyn Sutorius
The "Really Useful Handbook" series would not be complete without a book that encouraging teens to go green. This one covers it all—ethical grocery shopping, the carbon footprint, volunteerism, composting, and more. The glossary explains more confusing terms, and a list of links for further information guides readers to purveyors of organic chocolate, eco-friendly clothing, and the like. We can only hope kids will consider the food miles when buying from these recommended retailers. The most important message of the book is not about conforming oneself to a new practice or ideology, but a balance of Gandhi's "Be the change" philosophy and "doing what you can—without changing who you are." Cronin's tone is refreshing and challenging, informative, and encouraging all at once. The "Really Useful Handbook" series as a whole focuses on educating tweens and teens about various subjects—from the economy to taking care of one's body and from when a kiss is imminent to saving water. With layouts similar to a magazine, the book leads readers to familiar sights like quizzes and do's and don't's lists. Best for the teen just getting into the environmental cause, as it is a great first step, this book is recommended for small and large libraries. Reviewer: Kristy Lyn Sutorius
