There is a lot of talk these days about living green, but does anyone really live that way? In this non-fiction book, What's It Like, Living Green? Kids Teaching Kids, by the Way They Live, you will meet contributing authors who live green, such as Ryan Hreljac from Canada, who started Ryan's Well Foundation, by providing clean water to a village school in Uganda, at the age of seven. Learn about green kids like Devon Green from Stewart, Florida who began Devon's Heal the World Recycling at the age of five; she is now joined by her sister Jessica. Together they give their time and efforts to raise money for community causes. The students from St. Benedict's School in Blue Island, IL, have made a commitment to live environmentally green lives. You will learn from families how to make green choices as simple as putting on a sweater rather than turning up the heat. Learn how easy it is to reduce, reuse and recycle, to create a healthy environment for the future.
This book is written for kids nine and up, with tips for families as well as school activities. A portion of the books proceeds will be donated to Edwin Watts Southwind (sustainable and accessible) Park and Erin's Pavilion, in Springfield, IL, and Hibiscus Children's Center, to help build a playground for abused and neglected children, in Jensen Beach, Florida.
