The Lovereading4Kids comment
Perfectly pitched for younger readers, this is a timely collection of stories about an urgent matter that will affect everyone’s future. The stories have a global perspective with different authors tackling the different consequences of the world warming up. Crucially, although there are terrible things that happen as a result of climate change – as in Candy Gourlay’s story How to Build the Perfect Sandcastle which shows how an island in the Philippines is threatened by the temperature rise – this collection also shows that there is hope as children take action to make changes.
From the effects of rising sea levels to changes in animal behaviour and human lifestyles, these powerful stories portray the issues surrounding climate change in personal terms and so bring them vividly to life. Timely and hugely relevant these stories are as full of warmth and humour as they are providing warnings and inspiration and whether read from cover to cover or dipped into for one or two stories, will enlighten and inspire everyone to consider how climate change will affect us all unless we do something about it, and now.
Under the Weather: Stories About Climate Change by Tony Bradman
Offering warnings and inspiration in equal measure, the stories cover a wide range of localities from Siberia and Canada to Australia, UK, Sri Lanka and the Caribbean. Writers include award-winning Linda Newbery as well as exciting newcomers like Australia's George Ivanoff.
‘This collection of powerfully written stories explores the issues surrounding climate change in personal terms and brings them vividly to life for children.’ - The Bookseller
