Description
The highly engaging story of GG and The Eco Squad provides awareness and educational information to readers, namely children, about the responsibility they have to protect and save the environment. A journey through a creative collection of thirty four animal characters (known as Ecos), readers, young and old alike, will learn valuable facts and issues that pose a call to action. A colourful story, both in illustration and text, with an incredibly powerful message, each Eco was first rendered as a painting and then composed of primarily recycled materials that have collected or repurposed to produce an image of near-three-dimensional quality. This amazing story told by characters born of ingenuity and a desire to minimize waste through positive repurpose, provides a cross-curricular message of language arts, science, visual arts, health, and music that makes environmental education accessible for all types of learners. The Green Guardian and The Eco Squad e-book introduces a framework for creating an informed, responsible and sustainable population through the education of our children and the message of a positively green future. Parents, teachers and children are sure to find this e-book an experience like none other.
About the author
Sheila McPhee carries many beautiful memories of her upbringing as one of nine children growing up in rural New Brunswick. Now based in Fredericton, NB, McPhee creates EcoArt through a process that uses “landfill-destined” objects that are recycled and given new life as components of the paintings that McPhee produces. As such her paintings carry a strong ecological message that embodies the green values that McPhee encourages and promotes and lives. McPhee has visited a number of elementary school classrooms to share her passion for art and green lifestyle, which is now greatly enhanced by the story of her Ecos, The Green Guardian and The Eco Squad. Her art and literary work is aimed at creating the next generation of Eco Warriors!
