We are happy to update you that a Special Holiday Issue of A Distinctive Style magazine is available online on the magazine's website. Not only that this is a great green magazine, but it also has 2 pages dedicated to Eco-Libris!

A Distinctive Style magazine is an interactive digital publication that promotes eco-friendly businesses, products, art, and services to an entire global village. The magazine is passionately centered on inspiring people to live green, think green, shop green, and be more environmentally conscious. It is available only online so no trees are cut down for its production.

On the Special Holiday Issue which is described as an interactive galaxy of art, eco-awareness and inspiration, you can find articles on eco-fashion, eco-friendly artists, new wave of green transportation, an interview with Ed Begley Jr., going green for the holidays including ideas for gifts that give back, and much more. And it comes with music and video clips, so this magazine is definitely worthwhile exploring!

And of course, if you click to pages 56-57 you will find two full pages about Eco-Libris and our work.

And the winner in the "Polar Bears' Home" giveaway is...

Thank you for all the participants in our Little Green Books giveaway following our review of "The Polar Bears' Home: A Story About Global Warming" by Lara Bergen last Monday.

We got many comments about the tone preferred for children's books on environmental issues and I think we had a very interesting discussion here. If I try to summarize it I would say that most of the readers are in favor for a lighter tone at a younger age and a more realistic one when the kids are more grown up.

And the winner in our giveaway is treen berg, who wrote the following:

Thx for the links at the end of this post :). So you won't like my answer, but I prefer a lighter tone for my toddlers and young-uns who are eating up everything in life quietly, but when they get a bit older I'd like to read more books to them that offer more realism. Books are so powerful, story-telling to teach important topics will always have the attention of a child. I love reading lesson/moral teaching books to my kiddos and talking about matter how small the discussion! :)

Congrats treen! You will receive all of the four books published so far in the Little Green Books line: Little Panda, Little Monkey, I Can Save the Earth!: One Little Monster Learns to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle and The Polar Bears' Home: A Story About Global Warming.

And thanks again to Simon and Schuster Children's Publishing for giving this great prize!
