No World Too Big

Young People Fighting Global Climate Change

Fans of No Voice Too Small will be inspired by young climate activists who made an impact around climate change in their communities, countries, and beyond.

Climate change impacts everyone, but the future belongs to young people. No World Too Big celebrates twelve young activists and three activist groups on the front lines of the climate crisis who have planted trees in Uganda, protected water in Canada, reduced their school bus’s climate footprint in Indonesia, invented alternate power sources in Ohio, and more. Fourteen poems by Vanessa Brantley-Newton, David Bowles, Rajani LaRocca, Renée M. LaTulippe, Heidi E. Y. Stemple, and other kidlit luminaries honor activists from all over the world and the United States. Additional text goes into detail about each activist’s life and how readers can get involved.
