Growing Green A Young Person's Guide to Taking Care of the Planet by Christina Goodings


Growing Green A Young Person's Guide to Taking Care of the Planet by Christina Goodings

This attractive book will be appreciated for its warm exploration of a perennially important theme. The book consists of colourful pictures of a child doing the small things that underpin an environmentally gentle lifestyle - with an emphasis on taking care of small creatures and their habitats, nurturing seeds and seedlings, picking up litter and recycling - along with brief captions (with a hint of humour), to provide a useful 'talkabout' book. The whole concept is grounded in the clearly stated awareness that this world is sacred.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
