Journey for the Planet: A Kid's 5-Week Adventure to Create an Earth-Friendly Life is a fun, engaging illustrated workbook for every child who wants to make a difference for the world. Drawing on his successful EcoTeam workbook, which sold over 250,000 copies through a unique grassroots distribution model, environmental change pioneer David Gershon guides children through a series of action steps that cam impact both climate change and the environment as a whole.
The book's core message is one of empowerment. Taught by a series of animal characters, each of its 46 action lessons illustrates in clear, accessible language exactly how a simple change in the child's behavior can positively impact the environment. The book's pilot program, which engaged 4,000 children in schools across the country, was praised by teachers, students and parents alike as an invaluable resource that empowers kids with the precious knowledge that they have the power to take the future in their own hands.
If you have children, nieces, nephews or students, you've probably seen the concern they feel for what is happening to our environment. Now, they have a program to help them translate that concern into concrete action, and feel the heroism of being part of the solution.
