Here at Dot Kids HQ there has been a buzz about the forthcoming Greta And The Giants book, inspired by Greta Thunberg's stand to save the world. That buzz has been somewhat intensified by Quarto Kids' announcement of an added green initiative!
BRAVO Quarto Kids!
Here's what Quarto are saying:
"Readers! Activists! Everybody!
To celebrate the upcoming release of Greta and the Giants, for every confirmed pre-order of the book we receive we’re planting one tree in the Amazon via One Tree Planted.
Just order Greta and the Giants from your favourite book retailer and email proof of purchase (a receipt or photo of the receipt) to GretaPreOrder@quarto.com and we’ll send you an e-gift card with details of your new tree! If you’ve already ordered the book just send in your receipt! Tell your friends, share on your social, let’s make a change! "
Wow! Such a great initiative and how lovely for your child to not only receive this fabulous book but also an e-gift card stating a tree has been planted in the Amazon on their behalf!
Greta And The Giants will be released on 16th November, so you have just ten days to pre-order your copy and have a tree planted in the Amazon.
We have yet to receive a review copy of the book, but as soon as we do we will let you know our verdict! In the mean time here's what to expect:
"This inspiring picture book retells the story of Nobel Peace Prize nominee Greta Thunberg – the Swedish teenager who has led a global movement to raise awareness about the world’s climate crisis – using allegory to make this important topic accessible to young children."
The book retails at £6.99 pre-order your copy of Greta & The Giants now
Greta And The Giants is written by Zoe Tucker & beautifully illustrated by Zoe Persico.
The book has been printed sustainably in the UK on 100% recycled paper and for each sale of the book a donation of 3% of the cover price will go to to Greenpeace UK.
