Anyone who knows my boys (or reads this blog) knows that they are Super-hero obsessed. After all, Parker’s name came from a Super-hero. So, when I had the opportunity to review The Green Crusaders: The Filaments See the Light, I jumped at the chance!
What a great story!! We hear all the time about everyone going “green” and how we should do our part to help the environment, but this book goes one step further and explains to kids (and adults!) why we should go green.
Written by Gary Hillery, and Illustrated by Jeff West, the book is centered around 3 Eco-superheroes: Recycle Mycle, Hydro Hannah and Kilowatt Karlos and their sidekicks Plastic Mastiff and Eco-Ally. They receive word that the Filaments are a family in eco-crisis and rush off to save the day!
The book offers lots of great tips – most of which we already know, we just may not be putting into play. My kids loved the entire story. The first time we read it, nobody moved a muscle. They were completely intrigued throughout the story. I ended up printing out the book, and we’ve read it over and over again.
Since reading the story, my kids have become more aware of things we need to change: they turn off lights when they leave the room, they unplug things that we’re not using, and so on. It’s wonderful to see them so excited about taking care of something as important as our earth.
This is such a fantastic book! If you want to teach your children how to be more eco-friendly, The Green Crusaders is the perfect place to start!
