Smythe Note: I have two reviews on this book, one from Kathie, a retired preschool teacher and another one from a person by the name of M. Croskey.
Actually, I think they both have a point. AFter developing and creating the Green ABC's for Kids, I found that inserting the so-called 'green' agenda into a regular story that is well-known is probably a little contrived. However, teachers like Kathie are thrilled with these types of books- anything to get the kids to think, read, and get involved in timely issues.
I purchased this book three weeks ago for my two older grandchildren - ages 5 and 3. After reading it, I re-ordered it for my 2 year old grandson and another copy for a friend's pre school children. I am a retired pre school teacher ( with a degree in literature) and was in charge of the school library selections. This book is on target with the current global situation - a great way to get children involved in their future. I showed the book to several of my teacher friends and they were impressed

Poor effort at a Christmas book. Pushes the "green" agenda so much that the story is lost and one feels like they are attending a school lecture. M. Croskey
