by Shannon Brescher Shea - £13.99  North Atlantic Books (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781623174712 | ISBN 10: 1623174716

Drawing from cutting-edge social-science research, parent interviews, and experiential wisdom, science writer and parenting blogger Shannon Brescher Shea shows how green living and great parenting go hand in hand to teach kids kindness, compassion, resilience, and grit–all while giving them the lifelong tools they need to be successful, engaged, and independent.
 
Growing Sustainable Together is packed with easy tips, expert parenting advice, and practical hands-on activities for the toddler years up through the early teens. The enriching activities, resource guides, and recommended book lists in each chapter distill core sustainablility knowledge, like:
 
• Understanding energy efficiency and renewables
• Instilling anti-waste and anti-consumerist values
• Learning where our food comes from
• Developing a lifelong love for environmental activism, volunteering, and community engagement
 
The book concludes with a practical appendix that gives talking points for engaging teachers, school systems, and fellow parents in eco-friendly activities.
