Readers have made this experience personal.
WANT! My grade school was made of corrugated metal. Far from inspiring for kids. It's time we give the kids something that motivates all the while providing a green environment and shelter from the elements. Would love this book. -ZeroThreeQuarter
This book sounds fascinating! I am on the board for an environmental charter school in my city. This book would be a wonderful resource. -Ddaisy
As someone who does research on the effects of the new generation of green schools, I can say that LPA and its school projects, Cesar Chavez Elementary in particular, are a great example of how to work within the tricky world of public schools and still come out with a great building that used some innovative funding and design approaches. A great addition to anyone's shelf that works with schools. I wouldn't mind having a copy myself ;) -LBaker
If you haven't had a chance to visit a green school, take a moment and plan a trip. They are some of the most interesting buildings. I love how so many of them actively try to integrate learning and the environment which the children spend so much of their time in. -Rhurley
