If We Ate Up The Planet | 如果地球被我们吃掉了

Translated from: France
Could you imagine, if one day, our planet is without any water, breathable air, plants or animals? This simple yet thought-provoking picture book seemingly painted a bleak picture at first, of a planet that is depleted of natural resources and no amount of riches can fill up our tummy or give us clean air to breathe. However, the story ended with a message of hope that the child of tomorrow will preserve and ensure the continuity of life.
A great book to open up conversations with young ones about climate change and how and why our delicate environment needs to be protected and respected. Money cannot solve everything and it is up to each and every one of us to help protect our water, our air, our health, our environment and our Mother Earth.
This poetic tale is illustrated with vivid collages of recycled materials that instantly made an impression. A strong message with powerful visuals, it is never too early to raise environmental awareness and help shape positive world citizens.
