I always cared about the planet, but one day the Earthman came to our school and told the kids all about the very real dangers of global warming and the need to save electricity.
He also gave us hints and tips about how we,
the children, can help out.
That everything little bit really does make a difference.
This inspired me. I rushed home to see what I could do to save electricity and help stop the world from going to pot.
Read my first book “Sibo Makes a Difference” to find out how.
