Grow: An Environmentally Friendly Book was the brain child of my and my friend KJ Bradley. She and I both share a love of the planet and when our kids were little we would spend a lot of time tooling around the neighborhood, hitting the farmers markets and learning about urban farming. She and I wanted to create a book that would be a simple way to teach kids about how to value the things that would lead to a better, healthier planet. We thought if kids learned these concepts at a very young age and associated them with ideas for a healthy planet then they would grow to know these concepts later in life and even as an adult. You can read more about the process of making this project under the process tab, it was loads of fun and quite challenging too.

The version shown below was our original letterpressed version, it was later published by Featherproof Books of Chicago as a hand bound board book.
