1. The Legacy: An Elder’s Vision for Our Sustainable Future by David Suzuki
David Suzuki is a long-time science broadcaster and environmental activist committed to climate change reversal. His book The Legacy is the expanded version of a lecture he delivered in 2009 about the state of our planet today and his hopes for our future.
Suzuki encourages us to remember that ignoring environmental impact for the purpose of economic growth comes with its own set of consequences. If we don’t get started better preserving the earth, there won’t be a healthy planet left for future generations. But if we face environmental conservation challenges together, we can leave a beautiful legacy.
2. The Visual Handbook of Energy Conservation by Charlie Wing
Using elaborate illustrations of new eco-friendly technology, Charlie Wing provides a comprehensive guide to energy conservation. This book is full of well-organized data and useful tips on how to start reducing energy use in your home right away. It also explores energy-related building codes and ideas for remodeling your home with energy conservation in mind.
This book is one of the most practical resources for improving energy conservation techniques within your own home. If you are looking for a resource on constructing eco-friendly elements in your home or simply for energy conservation best practices, The Visual Handbook delivers.
3. Why Should I Save Energy? By Jen Green
Explaining a difficult concept like energy conservation to your kids can be tricky. In her book Why Should I Save Energy? author Jen Green lends a hand in teaching kids about saving the planet. The children in Green’s story tend to take electricity for granted, but they come to appreciate how important energy is when their community faces a power blackout.
This book is part of a 4-part series called Why Should I? dedicated to teaching kids about protecting nature. It is ideal for grade schoolers who are just beginning to learn about electricity.
