Free Children’s Book Helps Parents Explain Climate ChangeCurriculum
Model and activist Lily Cole has narrated a digital children’s book all about climate change, which aims to help parents talk to their children about the environment.
The book — Is This My Home? — is aimed at children aged between 5 and 8 years old, and follows the story of a little girl traveling around the world in search for the answer to the title question.
It shows, through the eyes of the girl and the animals she meets, that we all share the same home, the Earth, and aims to inspire children to love their environment.
The book, which is available in four languages and features illustrations by South Korean illustrator Yeji Yun, has been launched by Danish renewable energy company Ørsted.
“We can already see the extreme effects of climate change and we need a green industrial revolution that is unprecedented in size and scale to address this,” said Matthew Wright, UK managing director at Ørsted, in a statement.
“Our book launch is aimed at helping parents and children have positive conversations and make green decisions that will impact all of our futures,” he added.
According to a survey carried out on Ørsted’s behalf, around 70% of UK parents want more knowledge about how to combat climate change, and over 60% want to be talking more to their kids about the issue.
