Children’s book about climate change

In August 2018 my children’s book about climate change was published: Palmen op de Noordpool (Palm trees at the North Pole). The book tells the whole story of climate change for children aged 10 and up: history, causes, effects, measures and myths. But all of course in a fun and quirky way, with lots of mammoths, volcanoes and steam machines. In the Netherlands the book got very good reviews.

About Marc

Marc ter Horst is a Dutch writer of science books for children. Marc studied literature, but soon found himself more interested in geology, astronomy and evolution. Working at the National Institute for Curriculum Development he discovered his real talent was explaining stuff in little words. Eventually he found the courage to become an independent copywriter and wrote for websites, museums of (natural) history and educational publishers.

In 2014 his first children’s book was published: Hey there, Earth dweller! which has been translated into seven languages. His second book, From big bang to robot describes the origin of 38 things like the universe, life, dinosaurs, language, the internet and children. It was rewarded with an honorary mention by the Dutch jury for the Golden Stylus. So were De oma van de oma van mijn oma (The granny of the granny of my granny, 2016) and De Wortels van Oranje (The roots of Orange, 2017). In 2018 he published Palmen op de Noordpool (Palm trees at the North Pole), a very understandable and complete children’s book about climate change.
