We're happy to update you on a new collaboration of Eco-Libris - This time we're working to green up a great new children's picture book "A Lion's Mane" by Navjot Kaur.
The publisher, Saffron Press, whose books seek innovative perspectives to challenge bias, is working with Eco-Libris to plant 625 trees for the book's first edition.
And not only that, but the book is also printed on 100% recycled paper to show their commitment to the environment. This combination means Saffran Press makes a very strong effort to make a positive impact on the environment with this great new book.
So what's this book is all about? here's some more information from the publisher's website:
In this beautifully illustrated story, young readers journey to cultures around the world to explore the meaning of the dastaar, or turban of the Sikhs. Allusive words placed within a vibrant red dastaar help promote our connections as global citizens and encourage dialogue around issues of identity and kinship. A Lion's Mane promises to be a staple on the shelves of all young visionaries.
And here's the book's trailer:
"A Lion's Mane" will be available for purchase through Saffron Press' site in August 2009. We will review the book on the blog in a couple of weeks so stay tuned. In the meantime you're welcome to join the book's Facebook fans page.
