Parents, teachers, and youngsters will learn a lot about how to make "the best and most sustainable/green choices" for themselves and for future generations.
Topics range from green birth to travel to diet to toiletries and I continued to be amazed by the breadth and depth of Ms. Lights' latest work. I learned a lot from this forward looking book and I hope it enjoys a wide readership.' - Marc Bekoff, author of Rewilding Our Hearts: Building pathways of Compassion and Coexistence.
'A science-based account of the ways we parents might be more green, and raise healthier children in the process. The whole book is written with a view to the larger society, which is good, since that's the society our children will have to live in. - Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350.org, author of Deep Economy.
'More and more parents are thinking not just about what they can give their children as individuals, but about the kind of world they are creating for them. Zion brings together the latest peer-review science, looks at it practically and calmly, without being judgmental or preachy, simply helpful. I hope many parents will find this useful and reassuring.' - Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party.

Juliana grows bananas in her garden while her children, Billy and Bertha, are at school. There are challenges along the way – a hurricane, followed by a disease which affects the plants, but finally a good crop can be harvested. We follow the bananas from the field to the washing and packing shed, and the transport by truck and ship to the UK. The narrative is based on real life situations and illustrated with colourful collages made from painted textures and photographs, as well as photos of the landscapes and agriculture, facts and maps. In the back of the book are some delicious banana recipes and more information about how Fairtrade has helped to pay for some of the things in the book – such as the school bus and the science equipment Billy and Bertha use at school. We also get to meet real life banana workers along the supply chain from the Caribbean to our supermarkets.
