TGE KIDS' PICKS! It's Up to Us by Christopher Lloyd
– HRH The Prince of Wales
On this episode of TGE’s Current Read we chat to UK-based author, lecturer, non-fiction storyteller and father of two Christopher Lloyd about his latest children’s book, It’s Up to Us.
It's Up to Us forms part of The Prince of Wales’ Terra Carta initiative, bringing children to the table with a series of pledges that help combat climate change by showing readers how to put Nature first.
Replete with amazing illustrations by no less than 33 award-winning artists from around the world, this book takes us on a beautiful, lyrical and thought-provoking voyage through Nature, the threats we face and an action plan for the future.
In this interview with The Great Equalizer’s Sam Herbst and Charlene Armstrong, Christopher Lloyd shares more on why including children in the Terra Carta initiative and teaching them about climate change mitigation is so important. He also chats about his own educational journey with his then eight-year-old daughter, Matilda, which prompted him to start writing non-fiction for children.
As an added bonus, Christopher gives us the skinny on child-led homeschooling and, of course, tells us what he’s getting up to next.
