“Our World Out of Balance is a wonderful introduction to climate change and other global environmental challenges for children. Unlike so many other books about climate change, it does not traffic in fear. Instead, it presents the facts and shows what young people can do to help build a cleaner, safer and more equitable future for the planet.”
—Simon Donner, Professor, Climate Scientist,
University of British Columbia
“Many of us are overwhelmed by climate change and not too sure
of exactly what is happening to our Earth and why. Andrea Minoglio and Laura Fanelli have given us a beautiful book that explains how many Earth systems work—from farms to coral reefs. These are pages readers of every age will want to linger over, marveling at the illustrations and savoring highly understandable explanations of what to do for nature and how. Our World Out of Balance above all celebrates the amazing gift of life on Earth and will inspire actions
to save it.”
