Stories about Climate Change

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Here are eight short stories about how climate change is affecting children around the world.

Ben’s beautiful Philippino beach is disappearing due to the death of the coral reef. Jess is moved by the plight of Beluga whales in Canada and decides to become a marine biologist. Children’s lives are changed by floods in Africa, Bangladesh and Suffolk.

In most of the stories the children seek positive and practical solutions, but sometimes they have no options. Excessive heat and too many mosquitoes in India lead to Chandrika’s death from malaria. In Siberia the Nenets family can’t afford to look beyond short-term solutions.

A thought-provoking collection emphasising the importance of individual, as well as group initiatives. It isn’t too late to save the world!
