We Planted a Tree: cute n' eco-friendly.

I live in San Francisco. Composting is a way of life. My kid’s school has a pack-in/pack-out lunch policy. We even know people with chemical toilets. So, yeah, we’re well-acquainted with green.

But for my kid, these things are all pretty abstract. They’re just what we do, rather than what we do to make the planet a better place.

So, I liked We Planted a Tree. It’s a very cause-and-effect kind of book. We planted a tree, and it made some shade for us. It helped make the air cleaner. It helped prevent erosion. And, hurrah, we planted a tree and it made maple syrup. (Mixing self-serving motives with more altruistic ones is okay with me, if it helps the common cause.)

Another thread running through this book is that a tree grows with you. The first couple of pages show two young families planting a tree, then wraps up with the same two families, now expanded, standing around and admiring around their grown-up trees. My kid was very interested in this part – which adults from the last pages used to be the kids in the first pages. And how the parents in the first pages became old and have to use a cane. By no means is that the point of the book, but it’s a nice extra. 

And, another nice little extra – the adorable lollipop tree endpapers. According to the illustrator, Bob Staake, his books are known for their endpapers. I think this would make some killer wallpaper.

Okay help. This is so so so hard! (and I know my number 1 at the moment, but I am not allowed to show it)

(stumbled upon this one while searching for photos. Forgot that I made this of my sweetest classmate who I really really miss because she had to quit because of a burn-out)

(ofcourse Schönbrunn! Didn’t manage to take a shot of it without people on it, but I almost did!)

(my beautiful friend, this photo was for an assignment about freedom)

Don’t know if this are the best photos I made, but well, it is a little of what I did the past months.
