Sometimes talk of 'saving the planet' can be scary for kids. They wonder if they'll still have an earth to inhabit when they're older, and they have many questions that we adults wish we could answer, but we can't predict the future.
The recently revised and updated book The New 50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth, enlightens and most importantly, engages children and teens in solving the problems we face as the human race, when it comes to cleaning up our planet. In easy to understand language, (as it was co-written by Sophie Javna, age 15), this book explains the ecological problems facing our planet and then outlines ways kids may help improve the situation. I like the empowering aspect behind arming children with the knowledge to do something to help save the earth for themselves and for future generations.
Simple things kids learn about in the book range from the no garbage lunch, saving the whales, and protecting endangered species, to using energy wisely and conserving water. Ideas cover everything from a child's home and the things they can do around the house and yard to be more eco-friendly, and extend outward to the whole world, and what they may do to improve the earth from where they stand.
Each tip is broken into bite-sized information kids will easily digest and understand: Did you Know?/ What You Can Do / Amaze Your Friends/ See for Yourself
*The See For Yourself section gives kids URL addresses and websites to visit to learn more about the issue and ways to help.
This book is a must read for every child. It would make a great birthday gift, as it is filled with life-changing information that enables kids to save the world.
