Just what exactly is the "thing"? It is green—great and gorgeous green, dark and dangerous green, real mean green. And it's got green things—broccoli and praying mantises, watermelons and waves of mountains. It's green, green, green all over . . . except where it's blue. The Great Big Green is, of course, our earth. Both a riddle and an ode to the earth, this ingenious picture book arrives just in time for Earth Day. Perfect for budding environmentalists and lovers of poetry alike, this irresistible read-aloud by Peggy Gifford is illustrated with an astonishing mix of collage and painting by Lisa Desimini. Readers will revisit the gorgeous world over and over after the riddle's reveal to find the many green things hidden in each piece of art.

"Think of the future. Can you imagine our planet as beautiful as it used to be? You could be the one to help make it beautiful again, with the things you do and the ideas you have. Your planet needs YOU!" From a simple introduction to our home in Space, the authors explain what we need for life on Earth, and show the importance of the rainforests and the oceans; they stress the need to look after our planet and show how some of the things we take for granted are running out, and how we have polluted so much our planet. The action plans include saving water, saving energy, recycling, repairing, growing seasonal food, cooking fresh food, saving on packing, asking questions... and thinking of new inventions and big ideas.
