Another "have fun while saving the planet" kid-indoctrination book.
My thoughts:

Problems with the book:
1. Assumes there is a problem called "global warming." In fact, says that climate change is "widely accepted that this is caused by human activity." No it's not. Scientists don't agree because the science isn't there; science is not done by agreement or consensus.
2. Defines carbon dioxide, which is good, but also says it's what we all exhale. How can a gas we exhale in our normal existence be ha

Did you know only 10 percent of the energy released from a standard light bulb is converted into light? That means the other 90 percent is wasted as heat! What a waste of energy!

"True Green Kids" was a fantastic book that offers students and adults alike ideas that can help make our world a greener (environmentally speaking) place. With simple ideas/suggestions like recycling, taking shorter showers, or even turning off the lights, "True Green Kids" can give not

Recommends it for: kids, parents, teachers
True Green Kids is a good book to get ideas from. It packs a lot of information in, and does it well, with a little for each of the 100 things you can do. It is set up with a short main tip highlighted in blue on top, with more explanation available below if the kid wants to know more. Lots of photos and pictures!
This would be a good resource for Earth Day activities, elementary school science teachers, parents of little scientists, and kids in 1st to 5th grades.

A great introduction to thinking 'green' for primary school aged children.
It has suggestions on how to make small changes in bedrooms, homes, schools, and communities that can have a big impact towards helping the planet.

Good list of suggestions for what kids can do to help the climate crisis. A little bit harsh at times. Just because you don't have a worm farm doesn't mean you're a bad person!
