Although the target demographic for this book is slightly unclear, the images are unforgiving and the language is quite advanced. Written by two conservationists working at ZSL, Stories for our Children urges the reader to make a difference to the lives of our children, by contributing positively to the state of the natural environment by changing our old habits. Although it is unavailable on Amazon, the book is on sale at London Zoo in the children’s section. Alternatively, find it in a library near you!

There is also a published YouTube version, with Moby casting some atmospheric music over the story:
