Goal 13 | Climate Action: Picture Books

A Forest

A book about deforestation

All the Wild Wonders

For this celebration of our Earth, distinguished anthologist Wendy Cooling has chosen poems to make children look, think, and ask questions. Why are trees so important? How are motorways damaging our countryside? What can we do about rubbish? What can we do to protect our Earth for the future?

All the world

All the world is here. It is there. It is everywhere. All the world is right where you are. Now. Following a circle of family and friends through the course of a day from morning till night, this endearing picture book affirms the importance of all things great and small in our world, from the tiniest shell on the beach, to warm family connections, to the widest sunset sky.

Ruby Red Shoes

Ruby is gentle and kind and cares for all living things, including plants and trees, animals and people.

The Curious Garden

A little boy named Liam discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world.

The Great Paper Caper

When life in the forest begins to change; when whole tree trunks start to disappear, when homes are lost, the only course of action for the forest dwellers is to begin a full scale investigation. Will justice be done?

The tomorrow book

A timely picture book about a young prince who is determined to rule over a country where the future is filled with environmental hope - and practical solutions, such as common usage of solar and wind power.

Goal 13 | Climate Action: Taking Action

What can I do about the Sustainable Development Goals

Show LeadershipAs a global citizen how can I show leadership?

How can I take action towards protecting our habitat from the effects of climate change?

Australia is a country that often has extreme weather conditions.  There is drought, and bushfires, and floods.   What can I do to help when these things happen?

How can I help to slow down the effects of climate change in my own community?

I wonder which of the PYP attributes would apply to this goal?












Another way that I can show leadership is by pledging to TAKE2!!!
