Earth Day Giveaway

Earth Day 2013 is this coming Monday and here at Little Scribbles we have lots of Barefoot fun for you to celebrate, including the chance to win a copy of the award winning Barefoot Book of Earth Tales. The focus for this years Earth Day is climate change, for more information take a look at the  Earth Day website in which we can here how:

 ' Climate change can seem like a remote problem for our leaders, but the fact is that it's already impacting real people, animals, and beloved places. These Faces of Climate Change are multiplying every day. Fortunately, other Faces of Climate Change are multiplying too: those stepping up to do something about it.  ' 

It is true that, at times, we can often think that we are a small fish in a big pond when it comes to climate change but the small things really do add up and together we can make a big impact on our environment. One of the reasons that I became an ambassador for Barefoot Books was due to their strong stance on sustainability. With ethical sourcing of paper and manufacturing, awareness of carbon footprint when shipping, recycling of paper for our books and vegetable based ink, Barefoot lead the way when it comes to green business. Through our natural child and world culture books, we help spread the message about creating a happy planet. One of my favourite books is The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales

In The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales we Learn how different cultures around the world set out to live in harmony with the natural world in this popular anthology. The seven folk tales are each followed by a hands-on activity that promotes green living and reinforces the eco messages of the stories. Whilst the book is aimed at 5-11 year olds, I think it is a book that is fun for all the family, so make sure you enter the competition at the bottom of the page to be in with a chance of winning you own hardback copy.
