Is there anything better than books to inspire and educate? Today we bring you five proposals for children to discover the values of environmentalism, sustainability and care for nature.
NOSOTROS SOMOS EL CAMBIO: Jóvenes activistas por el clima, published by Ediciones SM, by Catalina Gonzalez Vilar (2020)
Aimed at teenagers and children, this is a book full of personal stories that can inspire anyone. These stories will show young people the importance of the power of committed action.
Why do we love it? In addition to the stories, it explains concepts such as renewable energies and the circular economy. In addition, it calls for a fairer and more sustainable planet through proposals designed to take action. A must without hesitation!
TEN STEPS TO ALIGN HEAD AND HEART AND SAVE THE PLANET (2019)
Mariana Matija is a well-known activist in social networks, known for encouraging reflection on our relationship with planet Earth.
Close, direct, simple and recommended for young people and adults. A book designed for those who keep hearing ideas for action in the face of the climate emergency, but don't know where to start. This book will be a guide to align feelings and head, reduce stress or climate anxiety and start acting coherently.
Why is it interesting? Because it does not sell the climate fight as an easy formula, but as a slow but steady process to follow.
The Magic Garden, EDITORIAL EKARÉ, DE LEMNISCATES (2016)
"Cloe lives in a magical garden, but she doesn't know it. Extraordinary things happen there: trees that change colour, insects that shine like stars. Every corner of this garden reflects the wonders that nature has to offer, which, although they seem hidden, are within reach of the protagonist's curiosity and senses".
This is how the story of this very poetic book is presented, which, in the form of a tale, has a clear ecological outlook. In addition to illustrations that will delight the little ones, it has informative sections that explain important aspects of nature.
THE DOVETAIL GANG, ADVENTURES TO SAVE THE PLANET (2019)
Maite, Santi, Pepe, Valle and Sol - Valle's little dog - live in Verdeluz and are part of a classroom that cares for the environment. One day they find a dead kite and decide to investigate the reason. What they discover makes them join forces, solve mysteries and become guardians of the mountains, rivers and meadows of Verdeluz. Would you like to meet them?
We especially love it because, apart from the ecological value, fostering friendship among the little ones is always a plus point for any educational element.
STORIES TO SAVE THE PLANET (2020)
Any story that wants to promote the environment must transmit the idea that we must take care of what we love, and loving nature is urgent and necessary.
Through six stories in which the protagonists are nature, children and animals, this book presents the most well-known environmental problems we face with a touch of hope.
Conveying to the youngest children that it is possible and that together we can improve the situation is essential for education and awareness to be deeply rooted in the next generations.
What is special about this book? You will always find a reflective and informative section to help you understand the stories presented. Thus, children will be able to see through illustrations the environmental problem presented in the story, they will learn how to generate changes and they will know that there are already projects underway to take action.
We love it because we find it very inspiring!
