Only con (as an adult) the kids come across as super smart and they always know the answers!!
Sometimes the facts and numbers at the end of the chapter are too much for my 6 year old to understand. But this a book that you will re-read so at 8 she will get more out of it !!
I will share two of the stories he included:
IT'S IN THE BAG: Dad brought Lucy and Elliott to the grocery store. They found organic pasta sauce and vegetables, but when they arrived at the checkout Dad had no bags. Luckily Lucy brought grocery bags from home. Following this story , Ian include family discussion questions. He also included a quote by Vincent Van Gogh; Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
LOOK AT LIFE FROM BOTH SIDES NOW: Lucy loved to create. She used pencils, crayons, and paper. She noticed she often did not use both sides of the paper and sometimes she threw away her pencils and crayons. She decided to change. Lucy revised her approach to her creative projects. She began to use both sides of her paper and all of her pencils and crayons until she could not use them anymore. There are discussion questions at the end of the story. Ian included this quote by Pablo Picasso: Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
There are a total of 26 stories in this book. Each one is excellent in its topic and discussion questions. I feel the book will definitely assist your family in moving toward using our environment and the resources we more wisely.
