Review

As all decent residents of planet earth accept, climate change represents a clear and present danger. Young people are increasingly aware of this too.

Books like Earth Heroes not only grow this awareness but also show that individual people can make a difference and change the world.

Earth Heroes features 20 inspirational stories highlighting the pioneering work of individuals from all over the globe, from Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough to Yin Yuzhen and Isatou Ceesay.

Whether it’s advocating for wildlife and conservation, striking to draw attention of climate change, planting trees to stop the desert or protecting the Amazon rainforest from deforestation, it’s celebrated here, told through the words of Lily Dyu and illustrations of Jackie Lay.

It’s a successful combination. In the words of David Attenborough, “The natural world is the greatest source of so much that makes life worth living.”
