The Lovereading4Kids comment
Tips for going green in everyday life are easily followed in this beautiful picture book introduction to conserving the world. Saving on fuels by making use of nature for things like drying clothes, composting, not wasting food, home cooking and re-cycling are just some of the simple things introduced in Melanie Walsh’s lovely, interactive illustrations.
My Green Day by Melanie Walsh
Make every day a green day with ten simple things to do between breakfast and bedtime. Turn the innovative shaped pages to reveal ten ways in which every child can make their day greener. With a helpful explanation to back up every activity, this is the perfect picture book for teaching young children the importance of conserving the world around them.
Review of ‘My Green Day’ by Books for Keeps [4 stars]
A manual of green living for the very young, Walsh’s picture book cleverly explains in words and pictures all the little things that can be done on a daily basis to avoid waste and save energy. Physically, the book has a strong ‘green’ aesthetic with its uncoated, recycled paper and cover boards (though, like most books these days, it is printed in the Far East which won’t help its carbon footprint). Each spread introduces concepts such as free-range food, composting and reusable shopping bags. The main text is supported by additional information in a smaller font size that explains in more detail why we should think about these things and the environmental damage that can be done if we don’t. Offsetting the didactic element are a playful keyhole narrative thread and die-cut flaps that bring the various activities to life for the reader. Design and illustration are well integrated to give the book a real sense of identity. An important topic is handled in a sensitive and entertaining way.
