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
