There is a lot of talk these days about living green, but does anyone really live that way? In this non-fiction book, What’s It Like,Living Green? Kids Teaching Kids, by the Way They Live, (by Jill Vanderwood) your kids will learn how other kids live green and find tips as simple as putting on a sweater rather than turning up the heat; they’ll see how kids, like them, can make a difference. Meet a teenage girl who learned to drive with a car fueled by used cooking grease. Read about a boy who raised funds to build his first well to provide clean water for a whole village, when he was only seven years old. You will learn simple ways to help the environment, help others, and even earn some money. Learn how easy it is to reduce, reuse and recycle, to create a healthy environment for the future.
