I have often come across airlines and many other organizations making efforts to reduce"carbon footprint". For each of us personally, "home" is the best place to start. I was so glad to receive this book to review as I introduced my son to a new word "recycle". He is small but it was worth reading it to him as he was repeating after me "Don't cut the trees!" , " Don't leave garbage on the beach!". Like I always say, children are never too young to read to!
I want you to take a look at the illustrations by peeking here.Did you find something different about the illustrations? Adrianna Steele-Card uses a combination of natural and recycled materials, highlighted by paints and fibers. Look closely and you will find fish made from leaves, cloths made from flower petals, and a host of other surprises.
