About the Book
The Roots & Shoots Book is a wonderful compilation of five families' journey, discovery, and growing concern for our environment. We looked at the life of a bee, fish, recycling, and trees. We planted trees locally for a global cause, raising money and awarness along the way. All profit from this book will be donated to The Roots & Shoots campaign to Rebirth The Earth, a tree planting initiative to restore the rain forests of Tanzania as well as our local landscapes.
Edited by Hillary Smith & Yeda Arscott for the Roots & Shoots of Christchurch, New Zealand.

The cookbook is our first book that my five and four-year-old have worked on together. We had loads of fun making it and testing the food. On a deeper level, we are also thinking outside of our kitchen and figured this was a good project that could help other kids that may need help getting a meal on their table. The Roots & Shoots Book is a wonderful compilation of four families' journey, discovery, and growing concern for our environment. This book is a collection of a year's worth of gatherings, activites, and outings we all contributed to in countless ways while living in Christchurch, New Zealand. Roasting Edith is a memory book created as a gift to Yeda's grandmother who celebrated with eighty friends and family members who were all very eager to give her a good Roast in celebration of her first eighty years of life.
