LIVING GREEN AND THE SMOKE by Florian Bushy
A story about air pollution, global warming and teamwork
The award-winning book “Living Green and the smoke”, 2nd place in Purple Dragonfly Green-Environmental Book Awards 2023, Page Turner Awards 2023 Finalist, and a Literary Titan Silver Book Award 2023, will teach your child the values of teamwork, friendship and the importance of working together to save our planet Earth.
At the beginning of time, planet Earth was so new, pure, and clean. This allowed all the plants to walk around like people! If you listened carefully you could even hear their hearts beating! One day, when our heroes Mrs Florence and Mr Florian met for their daily chat, the forest was hot and full of smoke and black dust.
Where was that pollution coming from?
With friendship, cooperation and working as a team, the trees, plants and flowers solved the problem and saved the pure planet Earth from the climate change effects.

LIVING GREEN AND THE SPELL by Florian Bushy
The day the plants stood still, but they are still alive
When the planet Earth was nearly born, plants and trees could walk and talk, living a happy life. One day, a “creature” came to Earth and had the intention of dominating them. Since then, the plants have stood still. However, they are still alive!
What would have happened that day?
A great book to introduce the concept of preservation of nature.This book is part of the "Living Green" series, picture books for children that promote environmental awareness, respect and friendship.
"Beyond just the mentality of recycling and picking up garbage as part of helping take care of the Earth, this book looks at our interactions with nature and promotes collaboration and problem solving to make lasting change in protecting our planet... The idea of villains and superheroes fighting over nature is also something that will interest young children. As a teacher, I could definitely see this book being part of my classroom library. I would recommend this book to parents and teachers of children in the 4-9 age range." Angie k, Educator - Netgalley Reviews
