A Book to Teach Children what Global Warming is and how to Save Our Earth
“RISING ABOVE GLOBAL WARMING” is the first child book on global warming to hit the market that successfully captures the young reader’s interest and attention, without putting a black cloud of despair in the child’s mind. This book will leave the child with hope and a positive outlook.
The author skillfully tackles this complex subject weaving a story that is entertaining and informative for his young readers. Terra, the Latin word for Earth, is a town that has to cope with the influence of the shifting climate.
Dee Nile is in denial and refuses to accept the fact that he is responsible for his factories contributing to the greenhouse effect, which is causing global warming. His son Kyle and his friend Cassie convince him to go on a trip with Cassie’s Mom to show him the connection between his factories and the global warming problem. The only friends Dee has are the Terra-birds, because no one else on Terra will talk to him. Find out what happens to Terra?

The child will begin to understand the threat of global warming through the eyes of the characters. The impact of the climate change has far reaching effects. It touches their lives, calls them to action, and takes control of their destiny. The intent of the story is not to frighten the child, but to take responsibility for their environment. The young reader is not burdened with the big picture moral implications, but instead learns that a happy result can be achieved by doing the right things.
The child will learn the terminology, theory, and ramifications of global warming. Also included with this story is a glossary of key words and games to help reinforce what the child has read. Help your child become a future global steward by reading “RISING ABOVE GLOBAL WARMING.”
