Welcome to our green city! You'll find flowers, trees, animals... and wind turbines, electric cars, and solar panels, too. In this city, a utopian imagination of what a sustainable community could look like, neighbours from diverse backgrounds come together to care for their surroundings and one another. As readers are invited on a journey through the city, they learn about what makes it environmentally friendly, from electric transportation to green classrooms to community gardens. With an encouraging tone that's never didactic, the text asks questions to encourage readers to find small details: butterflies fluttering by, birds sipping nectar from flowers, and all the ways people work together to take care of the community. The uniquely positive depiction of how city life could look in the future is complemented by backmatter that shares some common environmentally friendly ideas kids can try out at home. This uplifting picture book celebrates sustainability and community and encourages kids to think about what their ideal green city might look like.
