An Inspirational Book Aug 22, 2008
This book was written for teen-agers in the voice of a teen-ager who makes is very clear from the beginning that our North American life style is having a very negative affect on young people in other parts of the world where pollution and other kinds of environmental contamination are causes for illness and poverty. The author writes in a "cheerful and chatty" manner with lots of personal illustrations related to the various topics as presented in each chapter, but the underlying message is very serious. Many practical suggestions are given in each chapter for "doing something" to make a difference.
I would recommend that church libraries any where add this book to their shelves, and that it would be good material for small group or Sunday school discussion.
Chock-Full of Great Ideas! May 22, 2008
Emma Sleeth's book has dozens of practical ideas that I want to implement right away. I've already turned my refrigerator and freezer temperatures up, unplugged all unnecessary appliances, and started washing my clothes in cold water instead of warm or hot. Every little bit helps. Thanks, Emma, for sharing your wisdom!
Encouragement for living GREEN! May 16, 2008
This thoroughly delightful book for young people will encourage anyone who reads it to take steps in the direction of caring for the environment.
Well organized, easy to read and packed with suggestions for students!
Each chapter discusses a different subject of conservation and there are lots of decorated "boxes" giving hints along the way.
A helpful, engaging read for anyone!
Start now doing something! May 8, 2008
Just the thing to give an up and coming youngster, especially if you know they wish to be useful in this world. Emma Sleeth writes in a conversational style that is a 'fun read', but this book should make me and you do something to help this world. Too many of us ( I am a grandma!) have used and used and not thought of the ramifications of our willynilly expenditures (especially of non-renewable resources). Emma Sleeth gives great ideas for all of us, to rectify that situation. I will hang clothes on the line. Yes, I will! I will. I promise.
Green Food for Thought May 5, 2008
I couldn't set this down until I finished it! (Then I immediately passed it along to more readers!) I am, however, looking forward to going back and reading it again and applying all the great practical tips to my life. It's Easy Being Green is thoughtful, practical, amusing, heartwarming, and sure to make a real difference in each reader's life! My advice: order this, read this, start quoting this! Join the Ms. Sleeth and her father and keep serving God and saving the planet!
