This environmentally positive book contains everything children need to become guardians of the planet. Guided by a team of friendly Guardian Masters, readers can learn how to become keepers of the coasts, friends of the forests, home heroes and much more through a mix of compelling facts, creative activities and proactive tips. Key environmental topics are clearly explained, and the easy-to-follow projects and suggestions help to put the issues in an everyday context.
From reusing clothes and composting food to reducing water waste and giving wildlife a helping hand, this book will encourage children to engage with environmental problems and inspire them to take care of our wonderful planet. It also includes a foreword by ClientEarth, an organisation that uses environmental law to protect oceans, forests and other habitats, as well as all people.
