This Sunday, April 2nd, is International Children’s Book Day, and Peggada couldn’t let this date pass without one of our suggestions. We share four suggestions of children’s books that are also great lessons for the little ones about what it’s like to respect the planet.
Ana Pêgo has written a book about a new species that inhabits the planet: plastic. This work was born from the hands of an author who, while going to the beach, began to notice new plastic creatures that inhabited the sand and the sea. Besides being a text suitable for children, it is also an invitation to change since the ultimate goal is to eradicate this “species” from nature.
This book is born from the same mind behind Almaré Happy Foodsa vegan lunch box company, and therefore follows similar values. Thus, Tuneco, the story’s protagonist goes on an adventure in search of food more in tune with nature, eventually understanding the importance of eating more fruits and vegetables and avoiding soft drinks and packets of cookies.
Climate activists Joana Louçã and João Camargo have teamed up to write a children’s book that challenges families to save spring. The work was born from the difficulty of explaining climate change to children, trying exactly to find an accessible language (with a touch of hope and optimism) to describe how climate change has been changing the seasons.
Valentina Camerini is the author of this illustrated biography of Greta Thunberg, showing the example of a small-time climate activist who changed the paradigm of climate action. This book, whose main character does not live in the world of fiction, tells the story of a child who decided to fight for the climate every Friday and ended up as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019.
This book serves as a reminder of the importance of reducing food waste. In it, Simon and his family show what they do in this sense, such as keeping herbs in a container of water to make them last longer, composting, or opting for more vegetarian meals.

Leonor (better known as Nônô) inherited the taste for nature from her paternal grandfather, who used to carry seeds in his pockets to plant them when the time was right. She founded the Environmentalist Nucleus at the University where she graduated, was involved in civil disobedience movements for climate justice, and studied in London where she tasted the best veggie burger she knows to date. She pursued a master’s degree in Political Science and International Relations because it is an area she considers key to create a paradigm for climate justice. She went to Paris to deepen her knowledge in sustainability and later to write a thesis in the same area. Proud of her pots of mint and basil, an avid reader, a fan of afternoons spent around the table, an apologist for simplicity. She suspects she would be happy with a vegetable garden and a profession associated with sustainability and human rights.
