The Time to Care Series
This is a series of children’s picture books looking at the different ways humans are impacting the natural world, and what we can do to tackle these issues. We face a series of major environmental challenges, from the climate crisis to biodiversity loss and habitat destruction. Yet we have it in our power to change course and create a better world, and the next generation will be key in making this happen. Each book features a different character looking at a specific ecological issue and acting to fix it wherever possible. The title of the series, ‘Time to Care’, is reference to the fact that we need to care about the natural world, because it’s been a background issue which no one cares about. Humour and rhyme with compelling illustrations create a fun way of exploring somewhat difficult topics with a younger audience of 5-7 year olds.
