Stumbled across a good book at the library and just have to share: Recycle This Book: 100 Top Children’s Book Authors Tell You How To Go Green, Edited by Dan Gutman.
My kids and I really like this book. It is a Who’s Who of Children’s Authors and the 100 or so writings in the book are short and sweet. Many of these authors are serious environmentalists and they have all kinds of inspiring ideas on how to save the earth. We are getting lots of tips on living eco-wisely and we are finding new authors and new books to read as well.
Rick Riordan, Gail Carson Levine, Rosemary Wells, the author of Artemis Fowl, Henry Winkler, Mem Fox, Eve Bunting; all kinds of children’s authors are in the book. My two older kids and I definitely recommend this book.
Also, we picked up a new book: Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Ultimate Guide. We found it at our local library. The DVD for the PJ movie is being released tomorrow so we are excited about that. We are #1 on the list to get it from our library. Woohoo. Also, our librarian told us that Rick Riordan is coming out with a new series, The Red Pyramid. We didn’t know anything about it until our children’s librarian clued us in. We are #35 on the list for that book. LOL. It is supposed to be about Egyptian history.
Happy Summer Reading and Movie Watching!
