All the Feelings Under the Sun: How to Deal with Climate Change

All the Feelings Under the Sun: How to Deal with Climate Change by Leslie Davenport is a book written for kids that is designed to help them examine and work through their feelings and emotions about our changing climate. Just looking at the chapter titles gives a sense of what this book is about:

Introduction

Chapter 1: How We Know What We Know

Chapter 2: The Earth is Heating Up

Chapter 3: Everything is Connected

Chapter 4: Eco-Justice

Chapter 5: Making the World Healthier Together

In my work with classroom teachers it is common to hear a certain amount of hesitancy in engaging students (especially younger students) with learning about climate. The thought being that the content is too heavy and overwhelming. This book might be a great resource for thinking about how to tackle learning about climate head on with a solution-oriented frame and also dealing with our feelings about it.

  1. I love the idea of having a non-fiction the students can follow to introduce the topic. I use nonfiction only for my scientific method unit, but this makes me think I could do it for more! Thanks!
