Green from the Get-Go
We recently told you about the Lexicon of Sustainability, a language/photography project that helps adults better understand just what sustainability is. The idea is that you can’t be expected to live a more sustainable life if you don’t really know the basic terms and principles that define it. (A very fundamental concept — but so true!) This same smart theme makes its way into the children’s book “What Does It Mean to Be Green?” by Rana DiOrio ($16.95). The colorful, insightful story demystifies “green” for kids, citing examples like “giving the clothes you’ve outgrown to someone smaller than you” as a way to protect the planet’s resources. It’s an easy, relatable way to help your kiddo grow up with an understanding what it is to be eco — after all, story time is learning time. Printed on recycled paper with soy inks, it’s available now at littlepicklepress.com.
