This is How the Change Begins is a collection of six illuminating poems inspired by the growing threat of climate change. From a consideration of our carbon footprints by way of Islamic mathematician Alhazen, the impact shifting weather conditions are having and will continue to have on our events and celebrations and the choices we have to make to turn the tide, these remarkable poems brilliantly confront the recognisable realities of the climate crisis with bold and lyrical language. Including background notes on the themes behind them, each poem has been typographically designed and arranged to best communicate these essential messages.
Here's what some of our reviewers had to say about this brilliant book:
'With a bold design and a powerful refrain that underscores the entire book, this collection of six poems is inspired by the growing threat of climate change. Considering our carbon footprints, the impact shifting weather conditions are having (and will continue to have) on our events and celebrations and the choices we have to make to reverse the damage, these poems skillfully confront the recognisable realities of the climate crisis.' Natasha Onwuemezi, The Bookseller
'These poems are perfect for sharing, reading aloud, and using as part of learning. They are evocative – they encourage the reader to engage with the issues without lecturing by using beautiful language and rhythm to make their point.’ Michelle Armstrong-Harris, The School Librarian
With temperatures soaring and July being #PlasticFreeMonth, we thought there was no better time than the present to do our bit by creating some organic tote bags made out of recycled cotton to help others on their journey to a plastic-free life.
