Editorial Reviews

Review

Ecofabulous: “Make the most of story time with What Does It Mean to Be Green? by Rana DiOrio, a colorful (and appropriately soy-ink printed) book that demystifies “green” for the kiddos.” (Ecofabulous)

Parenting Magazine: “Rana DiOrio’s whimsical book teaches kids What Does It Mean To Be Green (Hint: It doesn’t mean ‘looking like a frog, or a pickle, or an alien.’)? Kids will have fun learning to see how their everyday life makes a difference.” (Parenting Magazine)

About the Author

Author Bio:

Rana DiOrio was born in Providence, RI and grew up in a colorful Italian-American family. Her curiosity about the world began in kindergarten, while studying Western access to China and, obviously, panda bears. As a political science major/psychology minor in college, and then as a law student, she became fascinated with understanding perspective, and how just about any person, place, thing, or situation can be interpreted in so many valid ways.

“I believe that I have two ears, two eyes and one mouth intentionally, so I listen and observe more than I talk,” she explains. “As a result, I think I’m better able to respect and appreciate diversity.” Rana’s inspiration for writing What Does It Mean To Be Global? was the election of President Barack Obama and explaining its significance, on so many levels, to her children.

Rana has written her way through life–as a student, a lawyer, an investment banker, a private equity investor, and now as an author and publisher of children’s picture books. Her interests include practicing yoga, reading non-fiction, dreaming, effecting positive change, and, of course, being global, green, and present. She lives in Tiburon, California with her three Little Pickles.

While illustrating What Does It Mean To Be Green? Chris was eager to use his talents to teach children to conserve and be more sensitive to the earth's valuable resources. He is committed to helping children learn to be actively involved in protecting our world.Chris Blair's other interests include sailing, traveling, and storytelling.

Format: Hardcover
I've given quite a few copies of this book to friends with young children, especially to families who don't quite "get" the importance of being green. What I love most about the book is that it is printed on lovely recycled paper using soy inks. I mean, it's one thing to talk about being green in a book, it's another thing to actually walk the talk and print in an environmentally sustainable way. The book has extra punch because of this. I love the whole What Does It Mean To Be...? series.

My students really enjoyed this book and now have a much clearer understanding of what it means to be green. They have passed on the message of the book to their parents, helping make a positive impact on the environment of their community.

This little book is truly worth a read or two. Not only does it teach children to be green, it helps change adult views of living too. I recommend it to all ages.
