5 Books That Help Explain To Your Kids Just Who Greta Thunberg Is

We need to make a small change at our homes first, then in our neighbourhood, then our state, then the country and spread the word across the world – just like Greta Thunberg. Here’s a book we recommend on #KSPBookClub Today.

I am sure your children have asked you, "Why is it raining in December?" or "Why are some animals extinct?" Climate change is real and is happening and we, as responsible citizens of the Earth – we need to do something about it. We need to make a small change at our homes first and keep the gen-next aware of what is in store (or not) for them in the future. By introducing them to the work of Greta Thunberg.

How do you explain to kids who Greta is? How do you tae on a topic as serious as global warming or climate change and introduce the marathon efforts of Greta Thunberg? We are there and we would want to help.  Get your kids to tune into this podcast where we talk about Greta Thunberg in a language your kids can follow.

On KSP Book Club, this week, we suggest just the right books that you and your children are going to love, that tell them all about this decade's most popular crusader- Greta Thunberg. 

Greta's Story: The Schoolgirl Who Went On Strike To Save The Planet: 



A post shared by Kidsstoppress | Parenting (@kidsstoppress) on

The book, Greta's Story is all about a school girl, Greta Thunberg and how she went on strike to save the planet. Greta Thunberg's story is about hope, courage and determination. Her story represents all the other boys and girls who are willing to fight against the indifference of the powerful for a better future. Through her story, this book will explain global warming to children and what we can do about it. It sums up August 2018 in Stolkholm when the TV news was reporting rising temperatures. 15-year-old Greta decided she couldn't wait longer and instead of returning to school, Greta takes a placard and foes on strike in front of Sweden's parliament building.
