I got this book in early April and wanted to hold off on reviewing it here until all the Earth Day hype simmered down. Why? We shouldn't just hear about all the products and services that will help us lead 'greener' lives on and around Earth Day! We need to adjust our lives to put forth the effort to lead safer, healthier lives everyday!
Healthy Child Healthy World is honestly one of the best books of this type that I've read in a very long time. It is not just a book to read once and put on the bookshelf. I refer to it regularly as a reference book when I have a question about a cleaning product, formula, toy, etc.
As parents, we want to do anything and everything to make my children's lives safer and healthier. But up until recently consumers weren't given easy access to the information and tools necessary to implement changes that will make a difference in our lives and those of our family. Now with Healthy Child Healthy World, parents can have this much needed information within reach 24/7.
Healthy Child Healthy World teaches us how to move away from cleaning products containing harsh chemicals, ammonia, and bleach and instead use items you may already have such as hydrogen peroxide, borax, and tea tree oil. These three things are great to use for getting rid of mold.
Two of my favorite of th 10 chapters in this book are "A Clean Plate: Choose and Eating and Storing Healthier Food" and "Child's Play: Safer Toys, Gear and Clothing". These chapters provide a wealth of information.
Endorsed by celebrities including Harvey Karp (The Happiest Baby on the Block - one of my favorite reads when Madelyn was an infant) Tobey Maguire, Sheryl Crow, Vanessa Williams, and Tom Hanks.
I highly recommend that all parents buy this book for themselves and for their parents and friends. This book can make a huge impact on your life like it has already done for mine.
