DAS BLAUE HERZ DES PLANETEN

DIE GESCHICHTE EINER MEERESFORSCHERIN

Even as a child Sylvia Earle felt at home in nature. When she was 12 her family moved to Florida and she started diving, exploring sea life and spending more and more time in the ocean, which eventually lead to her career as an oceanographer. Earle would spend up to twelve hours in the water and later even two weeks in a submarine, studying whales and other sea creatures. Stunning pictures show the beauty and vastness of life under water. In an afterword Nivola shows the damage we humans are doing to the oceans. An ideal read for younger children.

WIE VIEL WÄRMER IST 1 GRAD?

Was beim Klimawandel passiert

If you are looking for a book to explain to your child the rather abstract concepts of climate and climate change, what humans impact is, what politicians can (our could) do to and what each one of us can do, then look no further. This book explores the topic - offering very clear graphics and lots of information on the climate zones, green house effect or how what we eat makes a difference - in an age-adequate manner (though I would say adults can learn a lot, too. Maybe because it explains the complex in simple terms.)

SO EIN MIST.

Vom Müll, Abfall und Co

A funny and informative book on anything trash. And if I say anything, I mean literally anything. You'll get an historic overview, learn how clarification plants work, our body defecations, recycling, upcycling, downcycling, ways to preserve food (so you can keep them and eat them instead of throwing them out), different types of toilet paper.. this book is written (and illustrated) with a sense of humor, but more importantly after extensive research and was awarded the Austrian science book award in the category of Best Children's Book. Rightly so.
