BOSTON, 28 October 2021 / PRNewswire / – Massive floods, large forest fires, devastating landslides – 2021 has been marked by visible reminders of our changing climate, and children are taking notice. As climate change continues to grab international headlines, the future of our planet is obviously a priority for children and adults. We know children have a passion to help protect our planet, so what can we do to empower them?
Barefoot Books has partnered with the White Feather Foundation, founded by Julien lennon, from the Planet Protector Pack.
Independent publisher of children’s books Barefoot books has been committed to teaching children the values of conservation, community and connectivity for almost 30 years. They offer a collection of eco-friendly titles, but this year they are taking their commitment to sustainability one step further.

The Planet Protector Pack includes critically acclaimed Barefoot Books titles on renewable energy and natural resources, a tote bag made from recycled water bottles, a tree planting kit, and a suite of online activities for teachers and families. One of the titles included in the pack, Barefoot Pounds Water, has just been recognized by Kirkus Reviews as one of the “150 Most Anticipated Books of the Fall”. With each purchase of a Planet Protector Pack, $ 10 will be given to the White Feather Foundation to support their conservation efforts.

New York Times bestselling author Julien lennon, who is also a member of The Explorers Club, helps print a photo, including an inspiration letter for the kids.

His next book, a graphic novel for intermediate children, The morning tribe, will be released in November on Sky Pony. Lennon was recently honored with the World Literacy Prize for his work in promoting literacy through the White Feather Foundation.
