So You Want to Know About the Environment by Bijal Vachharajani
Climate Change, Food, Waste, Water, Wildlife are the topics covered in this book. Each section covers the subject matter, various fun facts, exercises and experiments/ projects to be done by the reader. The subjects are dealt both in a macro and micro manner in terms of immediate and long term impact. A simple question like what happens when you bin a tetrapak after drinking the juice? This is explained thoroughly explaining recycling, giving it a visual imagery. It follows up with action points one could take for recycling waste. I loved the concept of encouraging children to eat a veggie for each season using a colourful calendar. Not only it encourages one to ingest nutrition, but also it saves transport costs if one is using local produce.
My children have been reading about environment in both biology and chemistry. Between the two subjects they have dealt with air, water pollution, waste management and recycling and food chain and the importance of conserving and not wasting food and pollution. This book is a great way to reinforce and test their knowledge and in a way tell them that these concepts covered in subjects could be fun too. My grouse with the education system is that they do not teach practical knowledge and this book is one way to expand their knowledge avenue.
Interesting aspect is that in the first chapter itself, the author has covered geography, chemistry, English (fog + smoke= smog) and mathematics (graph)l. What better way than this book to connect the dots of education system?
The format of the book is like the bullet journal or notes one makes in class- several boxes/ clipped notes, space to take notes, facts, did you know, illustrations and experiments. It is a thoroughly interactive book. It also gives pointers on what actions one could take and I think it is a great way to involve children in environment conservation.
Readometer- Lucid and interesting way to teach children about history of economics
Cover - I loved the white background and the looka nd feel of the cover very elaborate and detailed
Interesting different illustrators for both books in the series have captured the theme of the cover.
