Climate change is happening all around us and kids of all ages are curious as to what it means. A great place to start is with THE STORY OF CLIMATE CHANGE: A first book about how we can help save our planet.
Filled with colorful illustrations, the journey to understanding begins billions of years ago. This historical approach is a good one as it connects to where we are today.
Text paragraphs interspersed throughout provide a nice balance to the images and help guide the way. The final pages are the most important of all and give advice on what humans can do to solve the climate emergency. A handy glossary wraps things up with definitions to common climate change words like Greenhouse gas and Renewable energy.
The book would be a perfect choice for school and classroom libraries or for your future climate change activist at home. Here’s the official description:
Combining history with science, this book charts the changes in our Earth’s climate, from the beginnings of the planet and its atmosphere, to the Industrial revolution and the dawn of machinery.
