Not Your Typical Book About the Environment

Elin Kelsey, Author, Clayton Hanmer, Illustrator , illus. by Clayton Hammer. Owlkids $10.95 (64p) ISBN 978-1-897349-84-7

With energetic cartoons and a positive attitude (an opening page promises “not [to] blame you, your baby sister, or your uncle Irving for climate change”), this green guide covers four kid-focused categories: clothing, food, technology, and human actions. Kelsey explores topics including eco-friendly apparel, biomimicry, urban farming, and ecological footprints, while occasional comic-style spreads make surprising connections between the local and the global (“How bees are connected to your burger and world peace”). It's a smart approach, and one that should inspire. Ages 9–12. (Feb.)
