KID’S REVIEWS

By Lyda Whiting

 

JOHNNY GREEN AND THE LITTLE GREEN MAN
Written by Suzan Tyler Decker, illustrated by Julia Marie Floyd

One day after school, Johnny Green sat in a field. The grass was tall and soft. He fell asleep. Until a little green man woke him up! The little green man was lost and needed to get back to the recycling center. Since he didn’t know where the recycling center was, Johnny put the man into his pocket and carried him home. But soon, the green man wasn’t so little any more.

He ate everything in the trash that should have gone to the recycling center — plastic and glass bottles, cardboard, paper — and he grew and grew. When Johnny came home from school the next day, the green man filled up the whole house!

How Johnny gets in and out of this predicament is a delightful and creative story that children will love. And the whole family will learn to recycle more consciously — lest the little green man grows and grows on them too!

Highly recommended for ages 3 and up.

IT’S NOT WHAT YOU’VE GOT! 

LESSONS FOR KIDS ON MONEY AND ABUNDANCE

Written by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer with Kristina Tracy, illustrated by Stacy Heller Budnick

Some people think you are what you’ve got. But they really have nothing to do with you. All the great things about you are inside — love, compassion, creativity, humor. There’s enough for everyone, and the great things in life will never run out. Abundance means more than money — it means all the riches of life, like love, laughter, and great friends. Those are the real treasures!

This book helps teach children that they are not defined by their possessions, that there is enough for all, and that they can create the life they want.

Another wonderful children’s book from the world-famous author and speaker.

Recommended for ages 3 and up.
