I agree - I think there is something truly exceptional to his approach in this book. He does a nice job of balancing concern with telling a beautiful and uplifting story at the same time which makes you want to step up and make a difference!

Go with your gut feeling. Talk about environmental issues when it feels right and when there is an opening. If you are walking along a creek, a river, a lake or a beach and you want to set a good example to your child by picking up a few pieces of garbage, this is an opportunity to discuss the irresponsible use of plastic. Once your child reaches elementary school, they will learn what the problems are. Before teaching my children about environmental issues, it was a priority for me to first get my kids to love nature by experiencing it as much as possible. If they love nature, when they begin learning about environmental issues, they are more likely to develop stronger feelings of stewardship. ~ Land Wilson

I just bought the book, Sofia's Dream, and I think it's the perfect way to show your children how to care for the environment, instead of actually telling them outright, which could be scary. Its a wonderful book, Land, and I look forward to sharing it with my child. I don't think you're ever to young to be taught to be mindful of anything, especially our environment.
