This is another lovely alphabet book from Sleeping Bear Press. There is some good information in here. I like that the humans depicted are multi-cultural. The illustrations are good. I like that the actions are ones kids can do and are encouraged to do.

However, I cannot give this book more than 3 stars, and that’s generous on my part, and reflects the contents that are there, because there is not a single mention of plant based diets. I’m not even talking about mentioning veganism specifically;...more
my 5 yo son just loved this book! He is big on saving our planet as it is & this really inspired him to think of ways that he can make a difference. We had major lengthy discussions on every page / topic of this book on what we do, what we could do, how things impact our world, carbon footprints, why others do or don't do things, etc. Big ideas with even huger impacts here. Granted our kids are already so "green" growing up in these modern times especially in a "green" area like Seattle with...more

I really enjoyed this book. It not only teaches kids their alphabet, but it also encourages a sense of awareness for our younger generation about going green. Its not as direct or heavy as some other environmental reads, but it 'kills two birds with one stone'. One, it teaches kids their alphabet which is important.

This book takes readers on a journey through the alphabet, with stops on the way to how he or she can help save the planet. The story and message are meaningful and could be used in a number of ways,to support young children's understanding of the natural world and our impact on it. The illustrations are detailed and amazing.
Yeah, okay it's my book, but I think it's pretty great. An easy breezy book for the whole family about greening your world. Small, easy, everyday steps.
