My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

The Little Green Jacket is a children’s story that shows how many lives can be touched by just one item through donations. The little green jacket starts out with a boy named Mike and warms several boys and girls until it is finally donated to Planet Aid and helps a girl on the other side of the world where a hurricane has devastated the area.

Through this story, children can learn about the importance of a simple donation. Whenever the jacket “talks” there’s a picture of the jacket next to the text which is green and italicized. The illustrations are black and white except for the bright green jacket which reminds the reader the importance of the donated jacket.

To add a little fun to the book, there are 20 recycling symbols for children to find. The Little Green Jacket is a book that children will enjoy, and anyone who likes to Seek & Find will have fun with that. Also, 10% of the profit is being donated to Planet Aid, so you not only get a great book, but you’re making a small donation to a good cause!
