Kids Fight Climate Change – Martin Dorey

Published by Walker Books

Kids Fight Climate Change by Martin Dorey is a densely-packed colourful handbook filled with practical activities (“missions”) for children to participate in. Its premise is simple – the planet needs our help, and by taking on one of 16 different missions, from counting your carbon footprint to keeping a patch of your garden for wildlife, each reader can become a “superhero”.  

The information in the book is detailed, which will suit confident readers. For the rest, the appeal is in the shorter statements that are complemented by Tim Wesson’s humorous illustrations.

This is an excellent book for a class whose pupils are taking on some climate-friendly challenges. The points awarded to each task bring a competitive edge and there is additional information about other campaigns listed at the end of the book for those who want to do more.
