We are delighted to recommend Mattea Pauc’s ‘Will Mr Sloth Save the Forest’.
Join Mr. Sloth and his forest friends on their quest to end deforestation in the Amazon rainforest.
This inspiring picture book highlights how, with a little teamwork, hope and indigenous knowledge, anything is achievable.
Here is why Mattea was inspired to create this book and why she started Re-educating Earthlings:
‘When a child is young, they desire love, safety, and affection. But then, they ask you to tell them a story. Personally, I didn’t think the right stories were being told.
I’ve always had a huge interest and love for the natural world, but completing an MSc in Animal Welfare Science, Ethics and Law sparked my passion for re-connecting children (and adults) back to nature in the midst of a climate emergency, hence why I created Re-educating Earthlings. I really believe in the quote ‘No one can do everything, but someone can do something’ and by creating these picture books I hope to plant seeds of consciousness into children’s minds at young ages to be compassionate custodians of the planet and all of its weird and wonderful beings.’
