A Fair Deal: Shopping For Justice


School Library Journal – September 19, 2017
“The author effectively uses vignettes from her own travels as well as a wide variety of visuals and fact boxes to engage readers in the cause. Jones has taken the mantra ‘think globally, act locally’ and provided a strong case. Useful for school research as well as service-learning.”

Booklist – August 29, 2017
“Jones explains why shoppers should be more thoughtful about what they buy and how their consumption affects people all around the globe. Moreover, by offering practical ideas for simple changes in the grocery story aisle, along with strategies for more organized activism, she asserts that fair trade is more than just a buzz word—it is a concept that is actually achievable.”

Kirkus Reviews – June 27, 2017
“Jones catches the beauty of fair trade in the way it strengthens morale and human dignity for all those engaged, and she provides a grounded (and painless) introduction to world geography.”

CM Magazine – June 22, 2017
“A Fair Deal is another worthwhile addition to the Orca Footprints series focused on ecological literacy, and it will help youngsters become better and more thoughtful consumers. Highly Recommended.”
