This is an environmental book with a quiz--How green is your family? It includes stories about families who live green by recycling, reducing, and reusing. There are also stories about kids who have started their own environmental organizations at an early age, and tips as simple as putting on a sweater, rather than turning up the heat.
Jill Ammon Vanderwood is excited to introduce you to some very special families who live green and kids who really make a difference for the environment. In this children’s book, kids as young as four up to seventeen are making green choices every day–and so can you.
In What’s It Like, Living Green? Kids Teaching Kids, by the Way they Live, you’ll learn how other kids live green, along with tips as simple as putting on a sweater rather than turning up the heat. You’ll see how kids like you can make a difference.
