Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of One Peace comes a new book of beautiful portraits and exciting profiles of ten young environmental activists from around the world. Janet Wilson's art captures the spirit of adventure, determination and hope that each of these children possess. They include Canadian Severn Cullis-Suzuki, who pioneered pester power - the idea that children must keep reminding their parents of what is at stake, and who at age twelve made one of the most rousing speeches at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio. And fourteen-year-old William Kamkwamba from Malawi, who realized that the strong winds in his country could be put to good use and so borrowed a book from his library, taught himself how to build a working windmill, and brought electricity to his village. And thirteen-year-old Sam Levin from the USA who helped found the organization Project Sprout, planting an organic vegetable garden that would eventually help feed an entire community. Full of environmental facts and advice, this book will inspire budding young eco-activists everywhere to start making a difference for their planet.
