Item Description

This book and recording have been made by many hands, hearts and voices in an expression of love, wonder, gratitude, and concern that all our contributors—songwriters, artists, engineers, book makers, educators, photographers, and authors—feel for our home planet  Ten thousand words could hardly describe the profound importance of sustaining and nurturing this earth  We hope the 42 songs in this collection will serve as a worthy and compelling start - Jessica Baron, Founder and Executive Director of Guitars in the Classroom

The Green Songbook presents popular and fun, inspirational songs about the environment that promote healthy lifestyles and eco-aware choices. Participating songwriters and artists include Jack Johnson, Ziggy Marley, Pete Seeger, Joni Mitchell, the Banana Slug String Band, Tom Chapin, and many others.

Each chapter in The Green Songbook focuses on an important aspect of greening our planet and our lives- supporting us in our efforts to learn about and bring about real eco-sustainability. The language is child friendly without being simplistic, as these writers have great regard for young people and recognize that the future rests in their hands as well as our own.

This daily integration of music with academic learning provides positive, inspiring musical access for all students as part of the regular school day.
