Lynne Cherry’s first book with Dawn Publications is How We Know What We Know about Our Changing Climate, co-authored with Gary Braasch. This book has won 15 awards including the AAAS/Subaru Award, AAAS’s Best Middle School Science Book of the Year and the American Meteorological Society’s children’s book award. Lynne is also the author of the classic children’s book about the rainforest, The Great Kapok Tree. Lynne lectures widely – and passionately – about how children can make a difference in a democratic society. If they feel strongly about something, they can change the world. She explains to educators how using nature to integrate curriculum makes a child’s learning relevant.
Along with Gary, Lynne founded the Young Voices for the Planet film series. The mission of the series is to limit the magnitude of climate change and its impacts through empowering children and youth, through positive success stories, to take an essential role in informing their communities — and society at large, challenging decision-makers, and catalyzing change since they will bear the brunt of climate disruption.
