Grow Your Own Treehugger
I was lucky enough to get a copy of this book last month and I've spent several days leafing through it. Grow Your Own Treehugger by Wendy Rosenoff is actually more of a workbook and is meant to be used as a jumping off point for more than a hundred activities that are suitable for kids ranging from toddler hood to pre-adolescence.
Grow Your Own Treehugger combines two things that young kids love: interactive fun and learning about the planet. The projects are simple enough that young children can grasp them and can be done with common items from around the house. Each project has step-by-step instructions which make it fool-proof even for parents who may not be "crafty."
The book is large, colorful and easy to read. It is a perfect tool for parents and teachers alike who want to encourage environmental awareness and teach science in a fun way. Check it out and grown YOUR own Treehugger!
