It’s Up to Us: A Children’s Terra Carta for Nature, People & Planet by Christopher Lloyd

It’s Up to Us: A Children’s Terra Carta for Nature, People & Planet is a gorgeous collection of illustrations from 33 award-winning artists. Each page is bright, full of detail and uniquely powerful. Lyrical descriptions of the key elements of our world and our human connection to them lead readers towards a “Terra Carta” – a plan of action for the Earth.

Every element of this incredible book is so accessible for children. They will identify with the passion for protecting the Earth that radiates from each page and realise they are part of the solution. The explanation of the Terra Carta created by HRH The Prince of Wales is presented as a series of statements children can commit to as they grow and inherit the Earth. This book would be a valuable contribution to EVERY classroom library. There is so much to read and discuss across the primary age range. The strength of the illustrations may be used to inspire children’s art lessons from the early years well into secondary school.

The foreward by HRH The Prince of Wales is heart-felt and straightforward. We must act to protect our world. It’s Up to Us: A Children’s Terra Carta for Nature, People & Planet has been published to coincide with the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) held in Glasgow (31st October – 12 November 2021).
