Knowledge is power. And this is exactly what How to Make a Better World offers; knowledge and power. For every kid who wants to make a difference, here’s the book to reach for.
Listed under four chapters – You, Community, Humanity and Environment, are 38 subjects that contain a great deal of information children can utilise to build a planet conscious life.
Suggestions open with self-care of body and mind which is vital. How-to ideas include kindness, paying it forward,
and recognising and coping with changing emotions. The power of positive thinking, repeating affirmations and nurturing belief in yourself, listening and being open to others’ opinions – even when you disagree, will strengthen learning foundations.
There are many building blocks available to enable a rich life in this beautifully designed book, with its colourful and bold illustrations, and larger text for easy reading.
It addresses ways of protecting the environment, our oceans, green living, wildlife and habitats, saving energy, and how to reduce, reuse, recycle amongst so much more.
Most difficult words are defined; words like discrimination, prejudice, stereotypes and assumptions.
Famous protestors, musical artists that have drawn attention to change, the dangers of fake news and what to look out for, and heroes that stood up for our planet, are subjects that make an appearance.
This is a superb reference book, ideal for reading at random, or from start to finish. A fantastic Find Out More listing references organisations that readers can get ideas from. A rich Glossary and Index are included.
