‘Will capture the minds of many aspiring environmentalists and young campaigners … packed with facts … an excellent choice for any school library’ – School Librarian
Wondering what to do about waste? How much of a menace has pollution become? How far have the ice caps really melted?
Now more than ever, we must examine our place in the world and understand how our lives affect the planet. Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s breathtaking photographs take a new look at the world on a grand scale and explore the question on everybody’s mind: ‘What does it mean to go green?’
Our Living Earth portrays the foreboding story of a planet in peril and shows what needs to be done to save it. Isabel Delannoy’s text enriches the experience, revealing fascinating – and often sobering – facts and figures about the world’s fragile ecological balance.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand has already captured the attention of budding environmentalists and naturalists around the world. This superb book informs children about the reality of the earth’s ecosystem and inspires them to do what they can to help the planet.
