The Great Big Green Book by Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)

The Great Big Green Book

Written by Mary Hoffman

Illustrated by Ros Asquith

Published by Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Introducing children to green issues from an early age couldn't be simpler, and what more vital reason is there for doing so than thinking about the planet they'll inherit from us. Diving into "The Great Big Green Book" by Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith, this is exactly the sort of resource that would be equally useful at home and in the classroom as this bumper collection of fascinating facts, interesting projects and makes.

Do you know what happens to your recycling, or in fact why recycling is so important?

What simple steps can you take in your everyday life to help your family become 'greener'?

The book is packed to the gills with brilliant illustrations and common sense tips that can turn your budding ecologists into green supremos! Love it!

Charlotte's best bit: Learning about all the interesting things that come from trees (like the tyres on a wheelchair and corks for bottles), even material for T shirts!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A totally engrossing and fun way to learn about green issues for younger children just taking their first footsteps towards becoming true eco-tots!
