Greta Thunberg: Climate Activist

“In simple, straightforward language, this offering in the Important Women series (8 titles) provides insight into the life and cause of Greta Thunberg. The short biography has four numbered chapters, plus a brief “Topic Spotlight” explaining the basics of climate change and its causes. The first chapter dramatically opens in the midst of Thunberg’s first climate strike, but the remaining chapters are more chronological, covering the 18-year-old’s childhood, activism, and impact through the pandemic that swept the world in 2020. Stratton also discusses Thunberg’s autism, noting how it contributed to her intense interest in climate change. Photos, which appear on every spread, effectively capture Thunberg’s passion. Perfect for readers interested in nonfiction, biography, climate change, environmental justice, political activism, young role models, strong women, and more.”  — Miriam Aronin
