You Can Save The Earth - And Color it Along the Way

"You Can Save The Earth - An Adult Coloring Book for Environmental Awareness, Conservation, and Sustainability"
is a different kind of read. That's because it's also an adult coloring book with messages both poetic and simple enough for children to understand.
So share it with them and you'll see their eyes light up - not only when they color the stunning drawings of wildlife and fauna, but when you explain the messages. From our limited resources and need to use less, to the reality that greenhouse gases are burning through the atmosphere so fast that if we don't do something, our grandchildren will not enjoy the same world.
What's unique about this book is that it not only instructs, not only offers pages to color, but offers prompts to make one think. For example, under "Choose to Reduce", the author quotes Pope John Paul II:
"The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations."
And then the reader is to complete an exercise: "Make a short list of ways you can reduce your dependency on fossil fuels."
According to the author Sean K. Smith, "Research indicates that half of all Americans live in areas with unsafe levels of air pollution." And the U.S. alone is responsible for about 16 percent of the GHGs in our atmosphere. This book will make all readers think about their choices and impact on the planet.
Numerous poets, scientists, politicians, spiritual leaders, and scholars are quoted, from Jacques Cousteau to Mother Teresa to Bolivian President Evo Morales, who said:
"Sooner or later we will have to recognize that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without us." ...
The book is published by Hatherleigh Press, and is available at bookstores or on Amazon.
