Book Review

I want to plant an acorn this year

Mum’s opinion – This is an inspiring book advocating for us all to make small changes to reduce climate change. Dave, the squirrel and Greta, the owl show us it is possible to do this each day by turning off lights, riding your bike, hanging out your clothes to dry and reusing paper too. The book teaches children the importance of how the climate has changed over the last fifty years and that we can make a difference locally and globally. We love the idea of collecting four acorns and watching the seedlings  and saplings grow.

Theo’s opinion – An interesting book with many ideas to make the world better. Dave and Greta got all the animals in the forest to spread the word as they held up posters ‘No trees = no nuts’ and the bear held up ‘I can’t bear global warming’. I want to plant an acorn this year with my Mum and I want to learn to ride a bike soon. I love the colourful pictures and animals in the book.
