Having recently shared our list of must read books on climate change, plastic pollution and other environmental issues (for grown-ups), we are back with our rundown of 20 books for children.
If your children (or indeed grandchildren) are anything like ours, they will be already be learning about and regularly engaging with the subject at school.
As such, we believe that these books can help children to learn about and better understand the threats posed by climate change and the crucial importance of looking after the natural world in an interesting and informative way.
