Be The Change: Poems to Help You Save The World

by Liz Brownlee, Matt Goodfellow and Roger Stevens ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-1529018943

A useful anthology of children’s poems to empower and support pupils in reflecting on the actions they can take to change the world for the better. The poems explore sustainability, the environment and caring for one another in a light-touch, yet impactful, way.

One of our favourites is ‘Start Now’ by Matt Goodfellow. The poem encourages children to be the change they want to see and contains the line ‘every single action helps, with a  friend or by yourself.’  This line is a great starting point for conversations in your classroom and can be used alongside our P4C lesson exploring social action an the impact we can have in the world.
