    Extremely useful and accessible book. It gives practical, clear, and nonjudgmental advice. I enjoyed the mixture of in depth scientific analysis with humor. A definite read for all new parents who wish to help leave a habitable planet for their children.

    An intelligent read. Don't let the title put you off if you're not 'green', the author uses green to mean having an awareness of social justice and ethical issues The book itself is not abstract but very practical and would benefit people from all walks of life.

    This book is truly worthy of its title. In this book, Zion Lights painstakingly compiles evidence regarding various issues parents (and would-be parents) may have to consider, from vaccines to diets and nappies. Rather than instructing parents to use 'common sense' or to trust their intuition, Lights delves deep into the scientific literature to provide justification for her suggestions. That being said, Lights' tone is supportive rather than preachy, so parents needn't feel they are being shame This book is truly worthy of its title. In this book, Zion Lights painstakingly compiles evidence regarding various issues parents (and would-be parents) may have to consider, from vaccines to diets and nappies. Rather than instructing parents to use 'common sense' or to trust their intuition, Lights delves deep into the scientific literature to provide justification for her suggestions. That being said, Lights' tone is supportive rather than preachy, so parents needn't feel they are being shamed for previously engaging in practices that are at odds with our current scientific understanding; it is clear throughout that Lights' goal is simply to help parents to protect their babies and the environment. This book should inspire readers to acquaint themselves with scientific best practice, as clearly our scientific understanding may develop over time, but the basic approach that Lights has used here should be applicable for all time (and indeed in all fields). To that end, Lights provides references for each claim she makes, so that readers can consult her sources, rather than being expected to take her word as gospel. In conclusion, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is (or may become) a parent, as I am sure following the advice presented here would have an enormously positive impact on babies and the wider world.

    It's good, but it reads like a report more than a regular book. This is not too bad, but it could be a more enjoyable reading. Nevertheless, it has plenty of interesting science backed data and facts to green the parenting experience a little bit. Even if it is a bit UK-centric, the advice is useful and clear all around.

    Clearly explained and easy to read, this guide to green parenting gives simple and practical ideas about how making small changes can reduce your carbon footprint. I also really enjoyed the chapter on vaccinations, a topic which can cause debate in parenting circles. Zion has gathered and summarised numerous evidence-based scientific research studies in order to bust some of the negative myths around vaccinations and advocates the benefits of vaccinating our children.

I also really enjoyed the chapter on vaccinations, a topic which can cause debate in parenting circles. Zion has gathered and summarised numerous evidence-based scientific research studies in order to bust some of the negative myths around vaccinations and advocates the benefits of vaccinating our children. Her non-judgemental attitude towards green parenting is refreshing and she doesn't make you feel as is you aren't doing enough to be green. This book is inspiring and a pleasure to read. The format means that you can dip in and out of it at the mood takes you.

    I didn't get on with this book at all. I didn't like the style of writing and found it to be very hard-line and exclusive. I was unable to finish it as I got annoyed at being preached at.
