Can Josie put the brakes on Global Warming?
After a summer with Grandma in Ecuador and an
encounter with Frozey the Polar Bear at the zoo, Josie
decides it’s time to take action on global warming. Her first
idea for Going Green is to organize her grade to drive less
by forming the Fourth Grade Bike Brigade. Best friends
Matt and Lizzy, along with her brother Damien and other
characters from the neighborhood go along for the ride.
But not everyone is in favor of the plan, and trouble begins
for Josie and Bike Brigade.
“I love this book and I can’t wait to have my kids read it. Great for adults too —irrepressible Josie and her pals can teach grown-ups a thing or two about protecting the planet.”
– Mike Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club
“Hooray for the bike brigade, real live superheroes. Not just because they bike, but because they organize!”
– Bill Mckibben, Author, Educator, Environmentalist and Founder of 350.org
“This is a gift for today’s kids — a book about serious stuff that is fun to read.”
– Annie Leonard, Executive Director of Greenpeace USA.
“Josie is a wonderfully accessible character who appeals to boys and girls equally. She is funny and fierce, carefree and conscientious, all rolled up into one cool kid. The story is as inspiring as it is engaging.”
– Kathy Collins, Teachers College Reading and Writing Project
