The theme of this reference book from the National Geographic Society is how to incorporate positive action in dealing with “green issues” and the family. The book contains directions on creating a safe environment for the family and how to encourage healthy eating and lifestyles, from birth through childhood. The text considers children in their myriad activities: their toys, eco-friendly schools, entertainment, family vacations, and other events that form their attitudes toward “planet-friendly practices.” An excellent reference, the work is an inspiring guide to parenting young children to “think green.”
