Awarded as a 2021 Malka Penn Award Honor Book, here is a timely picture book about a young girl's mission to inspire others to help the planet. The meaningful message of climate change activism is perfect for Earth Day and every day!

Celebrate young climate change activists in this charming story about an empowered girl who shows up, listens up, and ultimately, speaks up to inspire her community to take action against climate change. After attending a climate march, a young activist is motivated to make an effort and do her part to help the planet... by organizing volunteers to work to make green changes in their community, from cleaning a lake, to planting trees, to making composting bins, to hosting a clothing swap and more! Here is an uplifting picture book that is an important reminder that no change is too small--and no person is too young--to make a difference.

With simple text and lively illustrations, Andrew Joyner has given young children a timely story about activism, community, and hope.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The spunky, pig-tailed girl and her adorable dog from The Pink Hat (2017) return, this time taking on climate change. Like the original book, black-and-white illustrations set the scenes, but this time, splashes of green, such as the girl's green-striped shirt, emphasize her focus on the earth. (Astute readers will still find a few pink hats.) Simple phrases, all with the word up, narrate the budding activist's story. After waking up, she meets up with friends to attend a climate change rally with protesters of diverse races, religions, and ability levels. After holding signs with "Save the Earth," an image of Greta Thunberg, and related messages, she's cheered until she sees more devastation to the earth on the news. Realizing that activism is not a one-time protest but an ongoing movement, the girl thinks up more ideas, speaks at a town hall, and signs up volunteers. A final gatefold with "SHOW UP!" reveals neighbors recycling, composting, and caring for their community. A round up of other young climate change activists concludes the book. Uplifting!"
