Climate Action

Publisher: Little Tiger

This superb illustrated book is packed full of important information about the causes and effects of climate change, along with ideas about what we can do to help.

The first of four chapters focuses on what is causing the planet’s problems. This section explains what climate change is and explores some of the major contributory factors, such as agriculture, deforestation and mining. The second section considers the global effects these practices are having, such as flooding, droughts and biodiversity loss. Discussed next is our contribution to climate change, with advice on how to reduce the damage we cause. The concept of a carbon footprint is explained, accompanied by a breakdown of how much carbon dioxide is produced by different activities and processes: for example, food and clothing production, travel, and construction.

The book ends on a hopeful note, highlighting innovative ideas, actions and campaigns from around the world, and there are lots of suggestions about how readers can get involved.

This impactful overview of the global climate crisis explains difficult concepts in ways which can be easily understood by young readers. Fabulous full-page artwork, which provides colour and visual interest, will help children to understand difficult aspects of this complex environmental topic.
