I am reading Raising Elijah: Protecting Our Children in an Age of Environmental Crisis by Sandra Steingraber. I heard about it by chance, and by now I've ordered all her other books. The author is a biologist and mother of two who writes about raising children in the age of chemical contamination. Our children face an environment that is more polluted than ever before, and many of the very things that are poisonous have become so common that we simply don't think about it (for e.g. play yards made of pressure treated wood). Steingraber writes simply and to the point about things in our every day life (orange juice, tomatoes, lawn mowing and cloths drying) and documents everything. Not at all uplifting, but eye-opening.
