Help Kids Learn About Climate Change With This New Book
It’s carbon neutral, too.
If there’s anyone who needs to understand climate change, it’s today’s generation of kids. But even as the issue becomes more and more pertinent, it’s still not an easy subject to tackle with young children. A new Kickstarter-backed book hopes to change that. Written by Megan Herbert and Michael E. Mann, The Tantrum That Saved The World is a picture book that aims to engage children on the difficult topic of climate change. The book will follow the story of a girl who encounters climate change and how she rallies those around her.
But the book also practices what it preaches. In order to be carbon neutral, it will use soy ink and 100% recycled materials, and will be manufactured in a printing facility run on renewable energy. None of the waste generated from the book’s production will go to landfills, and its creators will also use carbon offset shipping to deliver the books.
As of now, the book’s Kickstarter campaign has raised nearly $6,000 of its $23,618 goal. Donating even $5 will help the book go to the print, but by donating $20, you can be one of the first in the world to own a hardcover copy.
