Book Recommendations

Posted on Jan 30, 2013 in Green Tip

If this cold weather has you reaching for a cozy spot by the fire and a good book, explore the greener side of literacy with these recommendations:

Start with The Better World Handbook by authors Ellis Jones , Ross Haenfler, and Brett Johnson. Specifically designed to reach people who normally would not consider themselves activists, The Better World Handbook is directed toward those who care about creating a more just, sustainable, and socially responsible world but don’t know where to begin.

Next on our list is Birthright by Stephen R. Kellert. Birthright addresses how people and nature interact in the modern world and is at the top of the Amazon Best Sellers list under Environmentalism. Kellert believes human health and well-being are inextricably linked to nature and provides a fresh understanding of how much our essential humanity relies on being a part of the natural world.

And for our last recommendation, invite your children, grandchild, niece or nephew to join you as you read Michael Recycle by Ellie Bethel. Michael Recycle tells the exciting adventures of a young superhero whose power allows him to teach people about recycling.

To find these books and others, visit your local library, bookstore, or favorite online bookseller!
