*Review* Pedro Loves Saving the Planet by Jess French


Genre: Children's 4-7
Published: April 18, 2023
Pages: 48

Pedro Loves the Planet tells the fact-filled story of day in the life of a boy who is passionate about the environment.

Pedro spends the day at his school eco club's forest cabin where he
 learns about electric cars,plants some vegetable seeds and encourages his friends to think of creative ways to recycle.

Follow Pedro as he shares his love of the environment – 
learn about renewable energy, discover fun ways to save water and find out what else you can do to help protect our planet.

With an 
engaging and lively narrative from Jess French and fun, warm illustrations from Duncan Beedie this book will help ignite a love and appreciation for nature, right on our doorsteps.

The Nature Heroes series focuses on a group of friends who are passionate about nature and the great outdoors. Each book features a different child who has a favourite topic that they are fascinated by:  Billy Loves Birds, Bella Loves Bugs, Ava Loves Animals and Pedro Loves the Planet!

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This is a short story about a woke little kid trying to be eco friendly. He explains small steps  that we can take in our everyday lives that can have a big impact overall on our world. I feel like these were things I learned about in school, although the way some people act now, people I went to school with even, maybe I didn't. Or maybe I learned them in a different timeline and have since moved into the worst timeline. 

The illustrations were bright and colorful with crisp lines showing examples for the steps we can take to help save our planet, or at least make it livable for a little bit longer. Overall I give this book 4.13 out of 5 stars. - Katie
