              Greta's story is about hope, courage and determination. You are never too young to make a difference. It's 20 August 2018, late summer in Stockholm, and it feels incredibly hot in the city. The TV news reports rising temperatures, and there have been numerous fires throughout Swe...den. Fifteen-year-old Greta Thunberg decides she can't wait any longer- politicians have to do something to save the environment. Instead of returning to school, Greta takes a placard and goes on strike in front of Sweden's parliament building. Greta's protest began the Fridays for Future - or School Strike 4 Climate - movement, which millions have now joined around the world. Greta has spoken at COP24, the UN summit on climate change, and has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is her story, but also that of many other girls and boys around the world willing to fight against the indifference of the powerful for a better future. For readers aged 9 to 12.

              Whether you're 5 years old or 65, it's never too late to get to know the feathered friends in your backyard, and learning their songs will open your eyes to a whole new world. Therefore this beautifully illustrated sound guide is the perfect way to introduce both children and ...adults to the wonders of bird song. Each of the 12 species covered - Morepork, Kaka, Sacred Kingfisher, Grey Warbler, Silvereye, Bellbird, Tui, Fantail, Chaffinch, Song Thrush, Blackbird and Starling - has a short description explaining some fascinating facts about that bird. Then the reader can press the relevant button on the panel on the side of the book and a short burst of the bird's song will be played via the accompanying speaker. The book is aimed in particular at children, but is great fun for all the family and perfect for helping to foster an interest in the amazing wildlife that lives right alongside us in our homes. It's ideal for keeping on the windowsill overlooking the backyard. The species covered have been specially selected as ones that will occur in and around most backyards in the country, however big or small. If you need a reminder of the twittering and fluty song of the Tui, or the Chaffinch's cascade of notes, it is simply a case of pushing the button. All in all this is a perfect title for anyone, young or old, who enjoys the natural world and listening to the songs and calls of our familiar backyard birds.
