Being a “green girl” for God means more than just caring for our planet. It also means appreciating God’s creations and understanding our responsibility in caring for the earth.
Each chapter covers different topics like water, air, energy, recycling, and renewing the earth, and includes crafts, Scripture verses, games, quizzes, interviews with real people and quotes from real girls. The book also contains science-based activities, career ideas, plus resources for more information.
Part of the bestselling Faithgirlz brand, Nature Girl: A Guide to Going Green is a fun read for any girl who enjoys science or the outdoors and a great resource for parents, homeschoolers, and educators.
Nature Girl A Guide to Caring for God’s Creation By Karen Whiting and Rebecca White is fabulous book to refer to over and over again. This book which I feel is more a guide is written in a Christian perspective. It introduces & educates pre-teen and tween girls to what being eco-friendly looks like. It encourages girls to take a stand confidently in making a difference first within themselves in not just the big things but in their small daily choices too.
The books starts out with an introduction which I feel is important not to look past. The author reaches out to girls no matter where they live and explains making smart choices in making God’s earth a healthy place to live. I like this because some people think they for instance can’t grow their own food if they don’t live in the country, etc! Together we can make a huge impact!
The Green List comes after the intro of the book. This list is The ABC’s of Going Green, complete with leads to chapters about related topics. Girls can pick a topic of choice and turn directly to the suggested chapter. There’s no need to read the book in order and that’s makes it great for topic studies. Since I’m a homeschooling mom to daughter, we’ll be using this book in our weekly science and nature studies indoors an out but also in our special one-on-one times for self pampering. Spa days at home, why not?
There are ten chapters. The chapters range from all sorts of things like what you eat, growing food, caring for your skin, taking care of animals, improving air, recycling, and much more. The book is full of many hands on activities and crafts, recipes, experiments, games, biblical scripture, facts, quotes from other girls, and more! The format is well done and there’s cute graphics through out that make the book even more appealing.
We will be using this book a lot. I think its a very beneficial book for any pre-tween-tween aged girl! Highly recommending it!
