    This is a bright and colourful parenting guide to help you become the green family that we all aspire to be It is a challenge to be green, but like so many of these guides you can take what works for you and it is a good read The book covers Learn and play naturally, Your green nest, Can I eat it now , Hunter gatherer, Body talk, Little green fingers, How nature can nurture your family and Green celebrations There are some excellent points made in this book from the huge toy mountain we all accumulate to reusable nappies I also liked the Grumpy Granny sections, with excellent advice to exhort us, as parents, to calm down, rush around less not easy I know and try to concentrate on activities like gardening with our children rather than driving them from activity to activity I also liked the Green Challenges although I suspect trying to siphon bath water out of a window in a heatwave assuming we have one would end in disaster if I attempted it Still, there is lots to enjoy and try out in this book and, as I said, you can take what you want from it The idea is to be greener and we have already managed to encourage hedgehogs into our garden, using the idea of a transparent box with hedgehog friendly food and a small access point to keep out cats and foxes which has delighted my children Hopefully, if they become regular visitors, we can make a hibernaculum for them once the weather gets cold There is loads of advice on recycling, living a greener life and having interaction with nature, so I recommend this book for any parents who do want to make a difference to the environment and with your own family.

    Thank you Goodreads for sending me this book This book is quite an inspirational read, as it contains guidance, practical advice information on how to live a greener lifestyle as a family without really compromising the enjoyment of family life There are simple, straightforward ways given on how to be aware of our natural world, how to make, find, build, buy and recycle things with kids in an ecological friendly way Some of the information may take a little time and effort, but you don t necessarily need to follow every suggestion in this book However, the book provides so much information that you do not need to spend time researching elsewhere its been done for you The front cover states how to raise your child, help save the planet and not go mad and it does exactly that.

    The ideas in this book are great though they aren t all a good fit for my family , but the layout is too busy and disjointed Five stars for the ideas and one star for the layout brings this book to a total of three stars.I received an ARC from NetGalley.

    3,5 Sterne.Grunds tzlich kein schlechtes Buch Es gibt viele gute Ideen und Anregungen zur konsumfreien Gestaltung des Alltags mit Kindern Tolle Bastelideen und Rezepte f r ges ndere Alternativen an Feiertagen etc.Evtl liegt es am Layout der deutschen Version , aber teilweise gibt es Infok sten auf Seiten, die nicht direkt mit dem sonstigen Inhalt in Relation stehen Man hat oft das Gef hl, die Autorin wollte hier noch eine bestimmte Sache, die ihr wichtig ist noch irgendwie unterbringen Auch wenn das Buch versucht alle Themen nach Kategorien abzuhandeln, wirkt es h ufig doch sehr zusammen gew rfelt Den meisten Lesern wird das egal sein, mich hat es etwas beim Lesefluss gest rt.Ich habe auf jeden Fall viele tolle Anregungen rausgeschrieben, die wir demn chst ausprobieren werden Und ich werde mir das Buch sicherlich noch einmal ausleihen und nochmal nachschlagen.

    This book is a nice book of parenting tips from pregnancy through young childhood about how to live green with your family From toys and play to house cleaning, food, and , each chapter has a Is it Green or Gross section as well as some sort of list of tips and resources, such as book suggestions for children, craft ideas, top ten tips for greening your supermarket shop , gardening, and The author is British and the book refers to activities and other things that are specific to Great Britain, but could be adapted to be applicable to anywhere I think that new parents can find some good ideas about green living in this book I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
