Editorial Reviews


"The Runaway Dandelion" is more than a modern eco-fable, it is a true story to inspire a generation with its vision of healthy alternatives for human families living compatibly with nature.
Midwest Book Review

Senior Reviewer

Superb for teaching little ones to love our planet and to take care of ourselves and our environment.
Children's Book Review 
Ava Kidz

The Runaway Dandelion is a 48 page children's book that is full of permaculture goodness for young kids up to age ten or so.  As the reader follows the journey of the dandelion, they are introduced to many permaculture practices, including natural swimming pools, wild harvesting, beekeeping, soil biology and food preservation.  I was very happy to find that this book has a glossary for many of the terms used in the story, as well as a resource list of useful websites.  As a children's book, I think it's great that it includes useful knowledge and skills along with the story.  Also included in the book, is a page dedicated to cooking with dandelion flowers and greens.  The illustrations bring the story to life on every page so even very young children that aren't reading yet can enjoy it.  My kids have been reading this book for the past couple of weeks and they really like it.  I received this book just as the dandelions in our yard were beginning to flower so it's been a good motivator for the kids to experiment with dandelions. I even started my own batch of dandelion and ginger vinegar that will probably be ready sometime in the fall.  I would like to see more books like this one because it's entertaining, educational and it focuses on what we can do to improve our lives with nature.

Today, I'm honored to be in the virtual company of Jill Regensburg.
Jill is the author of the recently released children's book, The Runaway Dandelion; Adventures in SustainAbility (EarthWardProject), illustrated by Leticia Plate. A Certified Permaculture Designer, her focus is on creating sustainable, organic indoor and outdoor spaces for living and growing food. She has designed, and for many years lived on a homestead in Vermont such as described in the story. As a Natural Foods Personal Chef and Teacher, Jill is passionate about preparing and eating organic, local, seasonal food and embracing an earth friendly lifestyle. As a mother and grandmother, she believes that inspiring young students to embrace ecologically sound practices, is the key to saving Planet Earth. The author's practice of Permaculture (permanent-culture) takes its cues from, and imitates, nature.

The Runaway Dandelion takes us on a fun adventure toward sustainability!  The lively illustrations and interesting and informative story reveal how easy and fun it can be to be green!  This story will inspire children to learn more about ecology and our place in it!

From the Author

Good Morning Jill,
Lily and I are so happy to have had the opportunity to meet you and purchase your book! We read it together last night and discussed the book afterwards while going through the glossary. She woke up this morning telling me how she can't wait to tell her friends about her new book and meeting you when she gets to school today. 
We appreciate the recipe and the useful links! Thank you for helping children learn the importance of sustainability through your story telling. I hope it touches and inspires many as it is with my daughter. 
Best wishes,
--This text refers to the paperback edition.
