This picture book tells the story of Nobel Peace Prize nominee Greta Thunberg—the Swedish teenager who has led a global movement to raise awareness about the world’s climate crisis.
Greta is a little girl who lives in a beautiful forest threatened by deforestation by giants. When the Giants first came to the forest, they chopped down trees to make houses. Then they chopped down more trees and made even bigger homes. The houses grew into towns and the towns grew into cities until now there is hardly any forest left. Greta and her animal friends are suffering a lot and Greta knows she has to help the animals who live in the forest, but how? Will she stand up for her friends? Will she find it difficult to raise her voice by their size?
Beautiful and bright illustrations on each page give a perfect message to young readers. It is a must-read picture book and its message is, “nobody is too small to make a difference”.
Also, a great book to talk about climate change and how it will affect us if we chop down more trees.
