Endorsement for Not Your Typical Book about the Environment

Elin Kelsey has produced a highly engaging book, pointing out surprising connections between kids’ lives and the rest of the planet. The illustrations are fantastic and make a complex subject—conservation and sustainable living—easy to understand. A wonderful book for educating children—and adults—about the environment. —Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder, The Jane Goodall Institute, UN Messenger of Peace

[Not Your Typical Book About the Environment offers] a smart approach, and one that should inspire.—Publishers Weekly

What a wonderful and fun compilation!! I love it! Definitely not just for kids. My colleagues and I each found sets of useful information for both our work and community projects.—Johan Stroman, Director of BC Green Learning
