We’re faced now, on a weekly basis, with hard hitting news concerning our environment – the damage that’s being done and the huge, horrible impact that’s having on the animals in particular who depend upon it. So this book, How To Help a Hedgehog And Protect A Polar Bear from Jess French and Angela Keoghan is timely. Very timely.
Not only that, but with this book’s core message being – simple changes can make a difference – it puts power and control back into the hands of the younger generation. Empowering them is key, right?
‘It’s difficult for animals to survive in the wild, but, as humans, we sometimes make it even harder.’
The focus of Jess French’s narrative is on exploring twelve different habitats.
These pages are enlightening and not too text heavy as French explains the uniqueness of each habitat in turn. This is then accompanied by an enlightening ‘Species Fact File’ on the varied animals to be found in each one, containing bite-sized chunks of information which are perfect for dipping in and out of. French’s completes each habitat chapter with a section entitled ‘How You Can Help’.
I love this.
Here the authors garner their readers into action, no hard sell – just small, easily achievable actions we can all take to make a real difference.
The glossy pages are a delight to pore over. Angela Keoghan brings to life each habitat with meticulous attention to detail. How To Help a Hedgehog And Protect A Polar Bear is a book to treasure, to keep and to learn from.
‘Even on a small scale, there are many things you can do to help save the world’s most endangered animals and their habitats.’
