Journey for the Planet
A Kid’s Five-Week Adventure to Create an Earth-friendly Life
"Journey for the Planet is an environmental adventure. Much more than planting seeds in a milk carton and watching them grow, the focus is on everyday habits and how to take action. There was no mistaking the feeling of empowerment and seriousness of purpose which rippled through the fifth graders.”
—New York Times
