Format: Paperback
Wendy Rosenoff has created fun crafts, projects and recipes that help children explore ideas that will help them discover an environmentally friendly lifestyle. There are fun ideas like releasing ladybugs into your garden. You will also find recipes for making skin creams and a milk bath from natural products.

When I was a kid I would have loved to have made a solar oven. Children will enjoy this project even more when they get to cook sandwiches outside. Some of the other recipes include:

Chocolate Orange Pudding
Fruit Pizza
Coconut Macaroons
Apple Muffins

For children who love gardening there is a fun project that shows you how to grow your own herbs in an egg carton. They can even create their own mini-wind farm or make a compost heap.

Most of the supplies needed to complete the projects can be found in the average home. I think you will find a few projects you really love. This book would also be perfect for teachers who are also looking for art projects. Each of the projects has a "chat point" and a "mini-chat point." These sections explain the meaning behind the projects. For example the chat point on the beeswax candles project says:

"Paraffin candles made from petroleum byproducts produce toxic soot, are laden with synthetic fragrances and number a population size greater than some countries. Converting to beeswax candles makes perfect sense."

We got this book as a family activity idea generator. Our kids are very focused on 'going green' since it's all over town, school, media, etc. Turns out the combination of sciency - crafty stuff included fits right into our house and our Scout troop. Lots of good links to other places with great ideas/information. Looking for more from the author....

Format: Paperback
Wendy Rosenoff has created a book packed with environmentally friendly -- and fun -- activities for kids showing green living is not a life of "doing without" but rather a way of looking at everyday things through a different light. The activities are presented in a very practical and hands-on way. They are varied and beautifully illustrated with clear directions. It is a great gift for teachers --I gave one to a pre-school teacher friend for Christmas and she loved it.

Grow Your Own Tree Hugger...... What a lovely book to both read, glance thru and most of all give as a gift to friends and relatives with young children. I loved the illustrations and the easy way to follow projects thru. Overall Ms. Rosenoff did a wonderful job in getting even me to think "Green"

I purchased this book so my children and I could enjoy crafts and activities together, while learning
to go GREEN. Going GREEN has become very important to me, and something I want my children not only
to learn about, but to practice. This book is so AMAZING that I purchased a copy as a gift for my
sister, so that she can enjoy doing these crafts and activities with her children. I highly recommend
this book, you will ENJOY it!!!
