Paula’s Journey or How a Hen Turned Us into Climate Activists

Once around the world: A family follows the tracks of climate change.

Twelve-year-old Paula’s bantam hen lays an egg in the middle of December. Hardly surprising, since this winter feels more like spring. But why? In order to understand this, Paula goes on an incredible trip around the world with her family, following the tracks of climate change. They want to find out how people, animals and plants react when the balance of their environment is disrupted by climate change. And perhaps they can also learn ways in which they themselves can change the world.

Jana and Jens Steingässer succeed in addressing the abstract topic of climate change on an authentic and personal level and provide lots of tips on how to deal with it in daily family life. The book has more than 150 fascinating nature photos from around the world.
