It is great for me, as a kid, to know that I am the future and am in charge of saving it.

I am adding this one because my ten year old loves it so. She has decided to buy her own copy after checking one out from the library repeatedly. She has implemented some of the ideas and is eager to help us all do more.

I unearthed a 1990s copy of this book while visiting family for the holidays. I was curious about what this copy might suggest, how the dialogue has since changed and how it has not. Overall I think it was a pretty great little book for what it is. It had a lot of simple suggestions for conserving water, reducing waste, providing habitat for local animals and so on.

This was probably the first time where I lived has played a factor in determining my reading selection. Having moved to Portland, I couldn’t help but take up a ...more

If you want to learn ways that you can "go green" but feel overwhelmed by where to start, this book is a great resource.

Best of all, this book has been updated since the 1989 version (which I have!) with websites for each topic so you can get more information.

Leí este libro básicamente como un chiste a mí misma y al chico que me lo dio. No es malo, de hecho tiene buenos consejos y está escrito de una manera entretenida, pero era difícil identificarse con los niños estadounidenses de los 90' a los que está dirigido.

Not what I was expecting. The book did not contain simple everyday solutions as I was hoping: it's more like a How-to book that is too complicated, not intellectually stimulating, and a little depressing

Not just for kids! Education, attitude, and implementation in our daily lives is the first step toward real sustainability, and it's never too late to start.

I loved the crap out of this book when I was a pre-teen. I hope I still have it, stored away somewhere...
