This hopeful picture book--written in the style of a letter--gives kids an honest take on climate change and urges them to band together to help the planet.

The world is a big, beautiful place full of natural wonders--everything from bees to rainfall can seem magical.

The world is also changing. Climate change has already had a devastating effect on the planet.

But it's not too late! If we work together and show a little more care, both for the environment and each other, we can keep this world beautiful.

This moving debut from climate writer Mary Annaïse Heglar is perfect for budding environmentalists and anyone in need of a little hope for the future of our planet.
