Our book recommendations
Ford the sock
In the stories of Jorge Voss (translation/layout Lilian Stross) the lonely sock Ford experiences many adventures. Together with firmm the picture story “The sadness of a whale is deeper than the sea” came into being! It vividly introduces children up to the 3rd grade to the topic of environmental pollution through plastic waste. With the help of the lovely drawings children tell the story about Ford and the Sperm Whale Observador on their own and thus deal intensively with this important environmental topic. Parents/teachers will find a short summary of the story and information about firmm at the end of the booklet.
Further information with example pages, ordering options and free worksheets for the booklet are available on Ford's website: www.ford-die-socke.ch
Kids for the Ocean
Teachers and parents of pupils from about 10 years of age are encouraged to read the book Kids for the Ocean by Anne Mäusbacher. With many questions to research, the pupils deal intensively with the topic of plastic waste. Among other things, they find out how plastic endangers the ocean, why it also affects our health and what we can do about it.
The inspiring research tasks with background information, graphics, and suggestions for websites and videos are an excellent guide for teachers who want to address this urgent topic in class. But the book also contains great ideas and solutions to the plastic flood at home - so it's equally recommended for families who want to make a difference.
