Book Review / Impressions:
This was a marvelous and cleverly phrased book that provides a simple explanation of basic green and vegan concepts that all can understand. The colorful illustrations bring a sense of whimsy while giving visual interest, and each letter of the alphabet is given a simple and easy to understand concepts that cover nutrition, recycling and even food sourcing.
While not a true ‘how to’ book, it does provide an awareness of concepts with easy to grasp habits and awareness of the world, and the necessity of informed choices and awareness of ‘where’ things come from.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own responsibility.
