Our House Is on Fire: Greta Thunberg’s Call to Save the Planet

Ages: 3 - 8Publisher: Simon & Schuster Author: Jeanette Winter


The recommended age range skews too young for this sobering, biographical book about young climate change activist Greta Thunberg, but will speak to older children who are aware of the issue. Told by author Jeanette Winter (Sisters: Venus & Serena Williams, etc.) through Greta’s own quotes, the book, colorfully illustrated with attention to real-life detail, doesn’t sugarcoat the consequences of a warming planet and is true to the exceptional young woman who has inspired children and adults all over the world to demand action from their leaders on this global crisis.
