Growing Green : A Young Person's Guide to Taking Care of the Planet
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.
