This book takes a very serious subject and makes it fun for young children to learn, understand and to do some small things to help save our planet. The book gives a brief overview of climate change and why it is so important for everyone including the very young to get involved. Children get an opportunity to become a superhero activist.
Children learn why the fight matters, they also get to learn about wind turbines, solar power, renewable versus non renewable energy, about not wasting water. There are some 60 different types of small actions and changes to become help in a small way. Although this book is a good introduction for young children to do their part, I thought the information provided about climate change seemed overly simplistic and incomplete - even for the targeted age group here. The illustrations by Tim Wesson are really fun and well done.
RATING - 4/5 stars
