Honeycomb Kids Book
** FINALIST IN THE USA'S FOREWORD REVIEW'S BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARDS **
264 pages including more than 300 practical actions and activities…
Not only have we been growing kids, animals and plants on the farm...we've also been growing a book. This book is the book we wanted to read but couldn't find in a bookstore anywhere - so we sat down and wrote it.
Honeycomb Kids is a book with two priceless benefits: not only does it help you prepare your children for an uncertain tomorrow (in a world with more than 7 billion people on board), it also helps you shift to a better family life for today. If you’ve ever wondered how best to prepare your children for the future, this book will empower you and them to make the most of a world increasingly defined by population growth, rising prices, fast depleting natural resources (peak oil) and an unstable political, social, environmental and financial landscape.
But rather than us talking about it...here's what some other people have said:
Advance praise for Honeycomb Kids:
In prose that is engaging and easy to read, Anna Campbell spurs us to think hard about the lives we have chosen to lead and the examples we are setting for our children. Full of practical advice on how we can help our children grow into happy, healthy, and resilient individuals, Honeycomb Kids is a must-read.
Kate Hopper, author of Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mothers
One world. One humanity. One destiny. It can all start with one family: yours. Honeycomb Kids gives you the ideas and tools you need to parent with the future in mind.
Professor Tim Flannery
Anna Campbell’s “honeycomb” is a metaphor for a context in which parents can raise resilient, capable, caring kids who can make their way in, and contribute positively to, a world that currently appears to be careening toward environmental and economic ruin. Parents will find both honesty and inspiration.
Richard Heinberg, Author, The End of Growth; Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute
Honeycomb Kids provides an important and timely contribution to the ‘collective wisdom’ of modern day parents across the globe. It is unique in its approach and scope and full of practical suggestions. This mother’s journey is set to be an important catalyst for affecting change, for the betterment of families, communities and humankind.
Lenora Newcombe, President of Hunter Alliance for Childhood Inc.
Sustainable lifestyles and families lead to real wealth. Use this book to help you start investing now.
David Wann, author, Simple Prosperity
We face a pressing challenge of creating resilient communities able to meet the challenges of peak oil, climate change and over consumption. “Honeycomb Kids” provides an easy-to-read, handy tool for shaping a sustainable, fulfilling future. While it provides practical ideas for how to nurture children who focus on what really matters, it also challenges parents and community members to reconsider how we live. Hopefully it will generate conversations and action at dinner tables, schools, playgroups, places of worship, parties and even boardrooms throughout the country.
Dr Graeme Stuart, Family Action Centre, The University of Newcastle
Positive change in the world comes about with the rise of new generations, so this guide for parents helping children grow through both global and personal challenges is both needed and very welcome.
Tim Costello, Chief Executive, World Vision Australia
If you’re a parent or a grandparent wondering how to tread lightly into the 21st century, you might like to start by reading this book.
Kirsty McKenzie, Editor, Australian Country Collections
Transition initiatives attract people of all ages, concerned about the world our generations are creating for future generations to live in. We try to live more sustainably ourselves and work at building local community resilience. We recognise that this process of transition will possibly take several generations. Anna Campbell’s “Honeycomb Kids” brings a fresh and very important new perspective to the Transition narrative. Written with skill, humour and heart, this book gives simple, practical and wise guidance for raising children who will undoubtedly be influential in building sustainable, resilient communities wherever they live in the future. Read it yourself, be inspired, and give it as a gift to anyone you know with children - the planet will thank you!
