The whole world in a small book.

Can you imagine the Whole World in such a small book?!

Actually Whole World published by Barefoot Books is an illustrated version of the popular children's song Whole World children's song that is popular in Christian circles. However, its been slightly modified to take out the religious aspects and the Whole World is quite frankly in the children's hands. If you think about it baring all religious beliefs this world is really in our children's hands. Facing global warming, recessions, global hunger, wars, and global habitats dwindling as we speak, not to totally go crunchy on you and regardless of what hippy earth loving mama beliefs I may hold, you cannot deny that we will leave our children with some pretty major decisions about the world. Though some of them fall on the decisions we make as adults now the world we leave them with is theirs.

A Whole World may just be the first step in teaching your children about their responsibilities to this earth. The song and illustrations cover not only the earth but the flowers, fish, animals, water, air and trees of the earth all being cared for by children of every race you can think of. As globally the protection of our planet is not just our responsibility but one that falls on the hands of everyone no matter if they live in US, Asia, Mongolia, Europe, or Australia it doesn't matter everyone plays a role in protecting what we have. The book just doesn't feature a song, at the end it gives some easy to understand information about our world's resources to help introduce kids to living green as well as some very very simple first steps we can all follow to help reduce global warming and help make our own impact on the earth a little less.

You can purchase your own copy of the Whole World with sing along CD at Barefoot Books!

I have one copy of Whole World to give away to one lucky reader!

I recycle everything I can, right now we are able to recycle everything but plastic. I wish we could recycle plastic though, right now we are just trying to reuse the plastic we have as much as possible.

Its amazing, to me, that I need to be reminded, how what we do today does effect my children so many years down the road, very thought provoking. We do recycle and reuse where we can, thank you. Icetwofire[at]aol[dot]com

I recycle and will stop using one-time use plastic water bottles now that I've won the Camelbak bottle from one of your contests :)

My husband carpools twice per week. We recycle pop bottles. I also save receipts and any used paper to use a scratch paper.
We want to put up solar panels on the top of our house but it's a bit expensive. We use our bunny poo for our garden and friends gardens.

Our family has cut way back on gasoline usage. And I'll be watching the presidential debates to learn which candidate has an energy policy that will most benefit the environment (rather than one that will just benefit the economy).

the easiest thing is to use the new light bulbs, it takes just a minute to install and you are saving every time you flip the switch

Our family made a commitment to become more green early this year. We have turned up the thermostat this summer and plan on turning it down this winter. We try to run many errands with one trip as opposed to making several trip in the care. All of us take shorter showers. Please enter me in your drawing. Thanks, Cindi
