ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- An accessible and reassuring guide to climate change - what it is, what causes it, its effects, and what can be done about it - pitched at young primary age children. The book - in a large picturebook format - presents facts simply and then shows the reader what they can do to contribute to slowing down climate change and saving precious ecosystems. It's not about doom-and-gloom, but about educating the next generation and enabling them to see that the problems have solutions. Illustrations are predominantly in muted tones of blue-grey-green with splashes of apricot and quiet pinks - nothing strident or loud - to match the balanced tone of the text. A fine resource for adults to share with the youngsters in their life.  Lindy

An accessible and reassuring picture book that teaches children about the specific challenges of climate change for Australia so they can be informed and make a difference.

Australia is a unique and incredibly diverse natural environment and we are oh-so-lucky to live here. Our country is home to a great number of amazing ecosystems. But things like fossil fuels, greenhouse gases and deforestation are creating imbalances in our ecosystems and causing climate change. Climate changes leads to all sorts of crazy weather and damage to our natural environments and wildlife habitats.

But it's not too late to fix it! Even small steps can make a difference and you have the power to help.

A practical and reassuring book for children to help them understand climate change and the ways in which they can make a difference.
