10 Things I Can Do to Help My World
Candlewick Press 2008
A timely picture book for young children who are eager to ‘Go Green’, this book will challenge and delight. Be warned parents, this one could change your life as well. It will also totally amuse, as the message is delivered via some ingeniously designed pages. From the cut out hard cover, to the sculpted inner pages you and your child will be moved, motivated and surprised with every turn of the page. Big bright illustrations lead us along to an eco-savvy way of life.
After reading this book I’m much more aware of how a few simple actions can save energy, money and yes, the planet we love. I did cringe though at the idea of unplugging the TV when it is not in use. The satellite box and the VCR at my place are on the same power strip and I had to go through a lengthy downlink cycle the next time I wanted to watch. And now the VCR is flashing 12:00 12:00 12:00. Yikes! (Fortunately I am one of the few people on my block who actually can reprogram a gadget.)
Not just a pretty book, this one puts it’s reputation on the line by being made of 100% post consumer waste material, saving tons of trees, green house gases and energy. Hats off to Candlewick Press for another winner.
Not every weasel in the woods is a bad guy. In my new book series you’ll meet one who is kinda sweet, if not overly bright.
Come back soon and I’ll keep you posted.
