Two important subjects to bring to everyone’s attention before you officially start your weekend.
The Green Crusaders
I was given the opportunity to review The Green Path Comany’s PDF version of the first in a series of The Green Crusaders: The Filaments see the Light.
The Green Crusaders are a group of Eco-superheroes who are dedicated to teaching families about simple ways to lead more earth-friendly lives. Our series of short stories, written for children ages 5 – 10 years of age, centers around Recycle Mycle, Hydro Hannah and Kilowatt Karlos and their sidekicks Plastic Mastiff and Eco-Ally.
Since my 6 year old spent the night at Grandma’s last night and my 4 year old is still crashed out, I read thru this book by myself as I sipped my morning coffee. The Filaments are an unknowingly wasteful family, but with the help of the Green Crusaders they are put on a greener path. It was a fun quick read, almost storyboard in fashion, I could totally see this being made into a Saturday morning cartoon! Actually better yet a series of commercials geared towards kids. Oh I’ll hush what do I know of writing books, cartoons or commercials? As you can see from the sample I pulled the illustrations are absolutely amazing, too!!
The last pages also include a pledge sheet, a checklist, and a fact sheet for kids to commit to going green. The book is available on CD for viewing on your computer or printing. I am not sure of the CD format, but the standard .pdf format I received was typical scroll thru which is not so kid friendly, IMO. I would love to see this presented in an e-publication, flip book fashion.
If you’re looking for a green weekend activity for the kids grab up this CD!
