Review: “Wilson is a carbon atom below the ocean floor, For millions of years, left in peace to sleep and to snore. One day a big boat appears and drills into the ground, And out pops Wilson up the tube but where is he bound? A car is where he winds up first although its rather hot, And as the pressure builds, out the car exhaust he’s shot. Landing on a patch of grass, oh what could happen now? Soon enough he’s eaten by a very hungry cow! Swirling through the stomachs, how long here will he spend? Sure enough it isn’t long ‘til he’s out the other end… In the atmosphere way up high Wilson causes thunder, If only someone planted trees to take Wilson back under.” I reviewed Somebody Crunched Colin at the beginning of the year by the same author/illustrator collaboration and felt it was a great book for children to introduce environmental issues. Roberts first book was the impact of plastic in the ocean and her second was the impact of plastic littering on our environment. This book is all about the carbon cycle. I felt this was an excellent topic as we hear in the news constantly about our own carbon footprint and the impact it has on the environment but what does carbon footprint actually mean? I for one wasn’t 100% sure on the carbon cycle so this taught me a few things, so if it taught me then it will definitely teach children too. Told in a rhyming narrative which I always find helps engage children in a story as they start to try and guess the rhyming words in the next sentence which makes them listen extra hard – this is great for developing vocabulary and inference skills too. Roberts has included a little introduction inside the front cover to explain about the carbon cycle to facilitate the underpinning knowledge behind the book to help with any questions afterwards which is always useful. The illustrations by Hannah Jayne Lewin are beautifully colourful and really help to aid the understanding. Plus there is a little cameo from Colin from her previous book which will be exciting for the children to find. With so much of our future dependent on looking after the environment and the choices we make to lower our carbon footprint, children will inevitably hear and be exposed to this language as part of their daily lives so this is a great book to start them on that journey of environmental awareness.

    Description: SHORTLISTED FOR THE BUSINESS BOOK AWARDS 2022 Does 'woke capitalism' improve capitalism's image or does it threaten the future of democracy? From Nike's support for Colin Kaepernick, to Gillette's engagement with the toxic masculinity debate, the 21st century has seen a sharp increase in corporations taking over public morality, a phenomenon which has come to be known as 'woke capitalism'. Carl Rhodes takes us on a lively and fascinating history of woke capitalism - from 1950s corporate social responsibility, through 1980s neoliberalism, tracing it alongside the adoption and mutation of the term 'woke' from Black American culture - and brings us right up to current-day debates. By examining the political causes that woke capitalism has co-opted, and the social causes that it has not, he argues that this surreptitious extension of capitalism has serious implications for us all.

    Description: If you're woke, you're left. If you're left, you're woke. We blur the terms, assuming that if you're one you must be the other. That, Susan Neiman argues, is a dangerous mistake. The confusion arises because woke is fuelled by traditionally leftwing emotions: the wish to stand with the oppressed and marginalized, to address historic crimes. But those emotions are undermined by widespread philosophical assumptions with reactionary sources. As a result, wokeism conflicts with ideas that have guided the left for more than 200 years: a commitment to universalism, a firm distinction between justice and power, and a belief in the possibility of progress. Without these ideas, the woke will continue to undermine their own goals and drift, inexorably and unintentionally, towards the right. One of the world's leading philosophical voices, Neiman calls with passion and power for the left to return to the ideals that built the best of the modern world. Also available as an audiobook narrated by the author. . John Wiley and Sons Ltd Left Is Not Woke - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
