ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jill Ammon Vanderwood is the 2008 Writer of the Year for the League of Utah Writers. She is the author of four children’s books: Through the Rug; Through the Rug 2: Follow that Dog; Stowaway: The San Francisco Adventures of Sara the Pineapple Cat, and she hopes to build environmental awareness with her first nonfiction, kid's book—What’s it Like Living Green: Kids Teaching Kids by the Way They Live. This book is the winner of the National Indie Excellence Award; The Teen Development Award and the Best Books 2009 Award. Jill grew up in Oregon, the third of eleven children. Jill and her husband Bill are parents of four and grandparents of six. They make their home in Utah. Jill loves going on adventures with her grandchildren, she loves to travel and tries to write something every day.

MY THOUGHTS
The book says for ages 9 and up. My boys are 4 and 5. It was still good though. I'm going through and reading it to them and expaining things the best I can to them. They really are learing from it. I think it's good to teach your children about living a more green lifestyle so that they and the generation after them can live in a more beautiful and healthy world. The book has 141 pages filled with lots of information. There are wonderful stories of kids who have made a difference. It really is inspiring.

BUT IT
The book sells on Amazon for $14.99

Wow! Amazing slide show about plastic bags. It really makes you think about using them. But if I don't have plastic bags, how do I clean up after my dogs?
