Eco Warriors to the rescue! written by Tania McCartney
Published by The National Library of Australia
Tania McCartney’s gorgeous new picture book, Eco Warriors to the rescue! is a fun way to get children involved with the environment.
Under the Australiana theme we join Banjo, Ned and Matilda on their journey to protect our environment. Each page comes alive with colour and relays a message that is both short and to the point but presented in a fun way kids can relate to. Simple things by not littering, reducing pollution, caring for native fauna and insects and being mindful of your surroundings will help educate children for generations to come.
Our warriors experience what our world will be like if we don’t take care and nurture it. They consult their favourite book, ‘Australian Flora, Fauna & Other Curiosities’ but this is no ordinary book. The trio dive in to see first-hand what our world will be like if mankind continues on its present path. Today’s youth are our future and our environment is in their hands.
The last few pages are bursting with historical content on our native fauna. A complete listing of the floral emblems for each state result in a handy reference guide for your children’s school studies.
The combination of photography together with beautifully painted botanical pictures is an ideal marriage ensuring a valuable addition to both private and school libraries alike.
Together with the assistance of the National Library, Tania has created a book packed with fun facts and the tools to help our young warriors grow to appreciate what makes Australia beautiful.
Eco Warriors to the rescue! is bright, colourful and beautifully presented. It’s a beneficial resource for the more experienced eco warriors and for those just starting the journey.
