Works about this Work

Picturing Sustainable Futures Geraldine Massey , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Picture Books and Beyond 2014; (p. 25-40)

This chapter considers how children’s picture books represent the contemporary environmental position of sustainability to socialise young readers into becoming environmentally aware adults, who appreciate the interconnectedness of natural systems, recognise that sustainability has local and global implications, and identify actions that support sustainable futures.The chapter directly aligns with the cross-curriculum priority (sustainability) and suggests ways for engaging with texts in the classroom that draw on the general capabilities of critical and creative thinking.
