We all want to make a better world for our future, don’t we?
This book ‘How to make a better world’ uses a simple step by step guide on different ways we can all make the world we live in a better place not only for ourselves – but for others too.
Aimed at children, but perfect for adults, this book dedicates each double page spread to show and tell different ways we can be.
Exploring yourself: Different emotions are explored from kindness to anxiety
Community spirit – volunteering to putting an end to bullying
Humanity – people power, starting a campaign and protesting
Environment – activism for animals, climate change and conservation.
Children will see how easy these actions are and how much of a big difference they will all make in how we feel about ourselves and the place we hold in the world.
‘How to make a better world’ by Keilly Swift is a great tool for parents and teachers to use on a daily basis with an easy way to focus on a different topic each day.
Children can read the double page spread and then discuss or create something that will help them to start playing a role in the world they can change.
A must read and a great link to sustainability outcomes in the Australian Curriculum
