Review:

"An optimistic look at choices we can make to improve the planet, this book assesses the impact of everything from the clothes we wear to the food we eat. But instead of laying a guilt trip on readers, it points to eco-friendly alternatives, from devising new products to opting for vintage clothes instead of new."
Washington Post

This upbeat, creative, wide-reaching explanation is indeed a standout in a genre composed primarily of lamentations for the polar bear this is one of the best books to date at dealing both concretely and philosophically with the blend of opportunity and challenge contained in the green movement.”
The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Can we move from nations of Captains of Industrial Agriculture’ to Super Sustainable Farmers’? According to this book’s well-thought-out logic and messaging on this and many other aspects of environmental awareness, of course we can.”
The Globe and Mail

This is an intriguing, fact-filled book about saving the environment in unusual ways This hilarious, information-packed work is an excellent addition.”

Elin Kelsey has produced a highly engaging book, pointing out surprising connections between kids’ lives and the rest of the planet.
