The first book on Million Tree-A-Thon is out there!

Many green books for kids are going to be published this month (well, Earth Day is coming), but the only one that not only will be printed on 100% recycled post-consumer waste paper, but will also have a new tree planted (see our logo on the cover?) for every copy of it, is 'The Green Parent: A Kid-Friendly Guide to Earth-Friendly Living' by Jenn Savedge.

And today, April 1, is the official publication date of 'The Green Parent', which is the first book to be published under the Kedzie Press' Million Tree-A-Thon initiative. Just a short reminder - in collaboration with Eco-Libris, Kedzie Press has launched last February the Kedzie Million Tree-A-Thon. For each book sold, Kedzie Press will plant one tree, with the goal of planting one million trees by December 2009.

We will review the book next Monday on our Monday's green books series, but in the meantime here's a short description of the book (from Kedzie Press' website):

The Green Parent is the perfect book for parents who would like to teach their children about living green. From how to save energy, to how to reuse and recycle everything, this resource offers advice for getting children involved in conservation, as well as products and services that can help parents raise more environmentally conscious children. Through a series of fun activities such as how to start a “light patrol,” how to make a “waste-free” school lunch, and how to build a “green” bird house—parents and kids will learn ways to make the biggest impact, save the most money, and discover how making even the smallest of changes can make a big difference.
