Listen to the Earth: Caring for Our Planet

Sale price$18.95


This nonfiction picture book offers a new and original story of climate change and how to respond to it. The lyrical narrative, gorgeous illustrations, and information-rich sidebars are built around the central concept of Earth Overshoot Day, the date each year when humanity has used all the resources the planet can regenerate in the entire year. In 2022 that date is July 28th--everything we consume and discard from then to December 31 is borrowed from the future. Listen to the Earth describes and illustrates in child-welcoming terms the global societal changes and actions that will push Earth Overshoot Day toward the end of the year to make our planet sustainable. In this call to action, the difficult path ahead is illuminated by an optimistic faith in kids.
