Counting in Green

Ten Little Ways to Save our Big Planet

by Hollis Kurman
Illustrated by Barroux

"What can we do
when Mother Earth needs our help?
From one to ten we’re counting green
to keep our planet safe and clean."

From one new tree and two breezy bicycle wheels to seven beach pick-ups, nine wild flowers and ten friendly neighbours, follow a group of children as they discover how every small action can make a big difference and help to save our Earth.

Illustrated with the simplicity, warmth and charm which Barroux is famous for, Counting in Green is an inspirational picture book, encouraging young children and their families to push for change and keep our planet safe and secure for all living things.
