The main objective of this book is to develop ecological consciousness and conscience in children, awakening a love of nature, to themselves and to others.
Starting from the fact that we have not inherited this planet from our ancestors, but borrowed it from our descendants, it is necessary for children to form ecologically acceptable behaviour toward the preservation of the planet - for present and future generations.
Recognizing the predisposition of children, that in their childhood, they learn very fast and easily accept the given models of behavior, in verse are processed and complex concepts: Recycled waste, ozone layer, acid rain etc.
In a simple way, children can make the difference between harmful and useful, and may acquire good habits, the importance of giving themselves as participants in generally valid processes, and thus acquire confidence.
Especially interesting in the book is the use of a kind of Ecometer, by which children themselves evaluate their knowledge of the environment. The questions are set to specify the problems of seeking logical, analytical and synthetic opinion. Examples and situations are given from everyday life in contents that are near to the experience of children.
