A witty guide to the science behind climate change, which puts kids in charge.
Never has there been a more perfect time to empower kids to take the lead and educate their grown-ups about climate change. Featuring a foreword by internationally renowned climate scientist Dr. Michael E. Mann and bursting with fabulous original illustrations, this delightfully witty book deals with the pressing topic of our changing planet in an uplifting, positive way. Interwoven amongst the more serious questions––why is Earth so special in the first place? How do we know about climate change? What causes it? How can we recognize false information?––are fun-filled facts about cow burps, woolly mammoths, panda-shaped solar panels, and much more. Crucially, this book also equips kids and adults alike with the practical tools they need to tackle climate change in their everyday lives. And there’s a handy quiz at the end so that you can check your grown-up has been paying attention!

We need more books like this! I love the attitude, which is awesome. Kids can influence their grownups because they care about each other. I've seen kids do the same kind of thing when they try to get their loved ones to stop smoking.
In this book, the science of climate change is explained in simple terms with helpful illustrations. There are details about real ways we're already seeing the effects of climate change and what we can expect. Importantly, there are several actions we can take to make things better.
At the end of the book, there are other sources we can look at for more information, including some books and websites geared towards kids. And there are even more ways we can do our part to hold off the effects of climate change.
Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read this
Important information about climate change is given in an entertaining and accessible format book. Facts are explained clearly to allow anyone to understand what climate change is, what can be the results if it’s ignored, and things to do about it - both simple and more complex. It is essential that everyone understands climate change, and this book is a vital connection toward making that happen. As an adult, I am grateful to understand more facts about it, and to be better able to explain it to my grandchildren.
This book was extremely informative, but also engaging. I learned a lot as an adult, and I know my students would enjoy this book in our classroom. The graphics and charts were easy to understand, and everything was very well-written. I plan to get a copy of this book for my classroom to use for a science unit.
