No World Too Big: Young People Fighting Global Climate Change

No World Too Big: Young People Fighting Global Climate Change.
Edited by Lindsay H. Metcalf, Keila V. Dawson, and Jeanette Bradley;
Illustrated by Jeanette Bradley.
Charlesbridge. 2023

This picture book biography introduces twelve young activists and three groups from around the world who are making their voices heard to fight climate change. These activists are watching, questioning, and demanding that world leaders keep their promise.

Each double-page spread includes a poem or song by different poets, and a brief bio of the activist. Young activists or groups included: Zanagee Artis, Greta Thunberg, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, The Marshallese Youth of the Marshall Islands, Aratemisa Xakriabá, Leah Namugerwa, Marinel Ubaldo, Autumn Peltier, Lina Yassin, Maya Penn, Nikita Shulga and Sofiia-Khrystyna Borysiuk, The Green School of Bali, Indonesia, Maanasa Mendu, Mackintosh Academy of Littleton, Colorado.

The book is inspiring, uplifting, and offers suggestions that any one person can do to make an impact in helping to stop climate change. Bradley’s illustrations, done digitally in Procreate for iPad are the perfect complement to the text.

Included is a glossary, how to visualize greenhouse gases, the different poetic forms used in throughout the book, and brief bios of each poet.

Another great books to display and share when talking about climate change or on Earth Day.
