Synopsis

Dirty Planet The Friends of the Earth Guide to Pollution and What You Can Do About it by Caroline Clayton

Car bans in Mexico City. Oxygen bars in Beijing. Genetically modified Frankenstein food almost everywhere. Dirty Planet gives you the low-down on the most pressing of the Earth's pollution problems and tells you exactly who is to blame - industry and governments around the world. But don't despair! You can make a real difference with the big clean-up, and this book tells you how. Featuring accounts of work young women have done to help save the planet - from working with Surfers Against Sewage in Cornwall to creating a bullfrog sanctuary in South Africa - and with easy, practical tips to make your home, school and neighbourhood more green and influence your local council and government, Dirty Planet aims to help make the Earth a better place.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
