A humourous, green read!

[caption id="attachment_476" align="alignleft" width="135" caption="A perfect read for all those trying to green-ify their lives!"] A perfect read for all those trying to greenify their lives![/caption] I was recently sent a copy of a very humourous book called Mom, Will This Chicken Give Me Man Boobs?, by Robyn Harding. In it, Harding records her trials and tribulations with her mission of raising a green family. She accurately describes the difficulty with navigating the green world - trying to separate fact from greenwashing, appeasing her kids' environmental worries and cutting back on Christmas and birthday celebrations, all the while trying to avoid going broke in the process. Harding aptly says that she'd have to sell a kidney if she wanted to continue purchase organic milk. One of my favourite parts of the book is the chapter with the same title as the book. Harding recounts a humourous conversation that started with her family over dinner one evening, inevitably leading to her 10-year-old son asking if the chicken they're eating contains hormones which will give him man boobs. If you're trying to go green, or have already gotten there, I guarantee that you'll find this book a very good, funny, educational and easy read. You'll be able to relate to it in many ways. In case any of you rush out to buy it, the book does not hit stand until March 7, so unfortunately you'll have to wait a few days. What green books would you recommend? Why?
