If your children are anything like mine, they’re currently on a mission to save the planet, thanks to the inspirational work of Greta Thunberg. If that’s the case, they’ll love this new book idea from WatAdventure. From the Sewer to the Stars: The Rise of the WatAdventurers is a 68-page adventure story with a focus on all things environmental, plus a twist – your child is the protagonist. How does it work? You enter their name on the website and choose the character that looks most like them, then sit back and wait until your personalised book, featuring your child as hero Blue Fox, lands on the doormat.
It contains two comic strip-style adventures: [Insert child’s name] Saves Slimetown and Planet B, plus eco challenges, fact files on climate change and water pollution, a mindfulness diary, instructions on making a recycling centre and tips on how to draw the book’s animal characters. It’s an accessible and fun way to introduce environmental concepts to six to twelve-year-olds and get your children on the road to saving the planet – a great bespoke Christmas gift at £24.99.
