Who Needs a Swamp?

Swamps are often seen as a dangerous and useless. They are often drained to create farmland or to reduce diseases. But such measures can be disastrous. Who Needs a Swamp? explores wetlands and their importance in the food chain and in preserving our soil and clean water.

This unique and powerful wordless book uses striking photos to show the impact of humans on the environment. Each provocative image speaks volumes.

  1. Who Will Save My Planet is of the most interest to me.I believe that this is a subject that should be introduced to children at a young age.

  2. I would choose Who Will Save My Planet? – my girls are just starting to understand the planets and our solar system and this would be a perfect fir for them

  3. Who needs a jungle would be a great read for my nephew! He loves all the animals and I promised him one day I would take him to Africa!
