After seeing this fantastic picture book on Mrs Brown’s Book Box’s Instagram page this week, I couldn’t help but buy it in time for Earth Day 2021. It inspires readers to protect the environment by learning about young people from across the globe who have made a difference in different ways. Reducing traffic pollution, looking for palm-oil alternatives, stamping out litter, saving water and reducing food waste are just some of the ideas featured and there are helpful suggestions on every-day ways to help save the planet as well as ideas on how readers can get their voice heard. It’s illustrated beautifully and has stunning end papers, too. I defy any young reader not to love it ?.
