Old Enough to Save the Planet

We rated this book:


Every day we are bombarded with negative messages about the environment. This dire situation can be overwhelming for adults, let alone children, who may feel as though they are powerless to change the world they will soon inherit. Old Enough to Save the World provides a powerful antidote, however. Here, author Loll Kirby tells the true-life stories of twelve children from all over the world who saw a problem and set out to make a difference. For example, Felix in Germany became passionate about reforestation and created Plant-for-the-Planet, while Himangi in India reduced the effects of traffic pollution outside of her school, and Adeline in Indonesia reintroduced native plants and animals after severe flooding. Kirby writes and Adelina Lirius illustrates each of these stories to provide a wealth of knowledge about environmental issues. Aptly, Kirby also offers additional information on ways to help save the planet and make your voice heard, along with a list of websites for those who wish to learn more. This book both encourages hope and action in children, and maybe even adults.
