Climate Rebels

Publisher: Puffin

This book begins with the quote: ‘The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it,’ a good reminder to all of us that it is the sum of our individual actions, and our ability to work together which will save us from the dire effects of climate change.

Lerwill profiles more than 40 environmental activists in this beautiful, informative book, from Jane Goodall (who writes about her personal story as introduction to the book), national treasure Sir David Attenborough and the founders of Greenpeace, to less famous heroes such as Trinidadian turtle protector Len Peters, fifteen year old Autumn Peltier, the Chief Water Commissioner for the Anishinabek Nation in Canada, and the Guajajara Guardians, who are often risking their lives to protect the ancient jungle of the Amazon rainforest from being cut down.

This inspiring collection of today’s climate activists from all over the world is perfect for older primary school children, both at home or at school. It’s the ideal way to feel informed about what’s going on now, and will have young readers thinking about they can help in their own communities.
