LoveReading View on The Great Big Green Book

This is the third in the excellent Great Big Books series, following on from The Great Big Book of Families and The Great Big Book of Feelings, and can there be a more important issue for young people at the moment than the environment? As with all books in this series, this explains the facts and issues clearly, and with humour: cartoon illustrations and speech bubbles keep the tone light, but convey a huge amount of information. At no point does it feel preachy, and the authors’ respect for the intelligence of their readers is clear. The book explores all the major conservation issues, including climate change, the threat of extinction, and the need for renewable energy, and it shows how children themselves can make a difference. An important and inspiring book. ~ Andrea Reece

The Great Big Green Book Synopsis

Think of the future. Can you imagine our planet as beautiful as it used to be? You could be the one to help make it beautiful again, with the things you do and the ideas you have. Your planet needs YOU!

From a simple introduction to our home in Space, the authors explain what we need for life on Earth, and show the importance of the rainforests and the oceans; they stress the need to look after our planet and show how some of the things we take for granted are running out, and how we have polluted so much our planet. The action plans include saving water, saving energy, recycling, repairing, growing seasonal food, cooking fresh food, saving on packing, asking questions...and thinking of new inventions and big ideas.
