  • Description or summary of the book: Nothing could be more important than the health of our children, and no one is better suited to examine the threats against it than Sandra Steingraber. Once called 'a poet with a knife,' she blends precise science with lyrical memoir. In Living Downstream she spoke as a biologist and cancer survivor in Having Faith she spoke as an ecologist and expectant mother, viewing her own body as a habitat. Now she speaks as the scientist mother of two young children, enjoying and celebrating their lives while searching for ways to protect them- and all children- from the toxic, climate-threatened world they inhabit Each chapter of this engaging and unique book focuses on one inevitable ingredient of childhood- everything from pizza to laundry to homework to the 'Big Talk'- and explores the underlying social, political, and ecological forces behind it. Through these everyday moments, Steingraber demonstrates how closely the private, intimate world of parenting connects to the public world of policy-making and how the ongoing environmental crisis is, fundamentally, a crisis of family life.
