We’re celebrating Earth Day with two recently released books which advocate for the preservation of the environment: the children’s book The Story of the Blue Planet by Icelandic author Andri Snaer Magnason and a collection of essays about the dangers facing the people, the animals, and the land of the Arctic, Arctic Voices: Resistance at the Tipping Point, edited by photographer, writer and activist Subhankar Banerjee.
The children’s book The Story of the Blue Planet (November 27, 2012 with the paperback coming out November 26, 2013) by Andri Snaer Magnason, has just won a Green Earth Book Award honorable mention during the Salisbury University Read Green Literature Festival on April 5, 2013. The literature award, sponsored by the environmental nonprofit The Nature Generation, is given to authors and illustrators whose books best inspire young readers to appreciate and care for the environment.
