Title: The Crown
Author: Emily Kapff
Reviewer: Donna Dobson
Audience: ES1 - Stage 2
“We have never met, you and I. I speak from the future which is not yours yet. It is being shaped.”
A book with few words, and beautifully illustrated with delicate colours and careful detail. A girl wears a crown made from rubbish, and she stands upon a landfill hill. In the rubbish she discovers a picture book depicting the beauty of nature in a time before hers. As she ponders the wonderful animals and environments that once were, the girl encourages us to protect the world of nature now. This book would be a great resource to use to introduce a unit on environment and waste.
