Ten Things I Can Do to Help My World

By Melanie Walsh

Written in a way that pre-schoolers will understand and yet gives a message that all ages should learn. An important book for the new generation.

A beautifully simple book for small children where transforming pages reveal ten things that everyone can do to help conserve their world. Many of them, such as turning off the television properly, walking to school and turning off lights when leaving a room, are about conserving energy. Others, such as feeding the birds in winter and growing plants from seed, will encourage an understanding of nature and conservation.
