The Mystery of the Lost Waterfall (The Green World) by Sonia Mehta is the fourth book of The Green World Series published by Puffin. This series of story-cum-activity books for children aims to teach environmental awareness early on. This book has 64 pages and is targeted at children of six years and over. I am thankful to the publisher for providing me a review copy of the book.
MEET THE ECONUTS
Dewy, Woosh, Petals, Pebbles and Waggy call themselves the Econuts because they are simply nuts about ecology and the environment!
Learn all about the many ways in which you can help save Planet Earth in this series of story-and-activity books, aimed at generating ecological awareness through a mix of fiction, puzzles, games, activities and more.
Dewy and her class are going on a picnic to a lovely waterfall. But when they get there, they find that the waterfall has gone missing! Dewy gets the Econuts on the case at once. Can they find out where the waterfall went? Read on to find out.
I loved the way the author has introduced the concept of water scarcity for children using a story where five friends are out on a picnic to waterfall and find that the waterfall has disappeared and there are no birds too. The book has different activities like names of different kinds of water bodies, find out hidden words, join the dots, spot the difference, matching pictures, a maze, reasons of wasting water, rhyming words, word grid, and making a water catcher and a poster to save water. There is space for children to record the activities done by them.
She has used beautiful illustrations and has used the book to make the reader aware of the reasons of all the water problems the world faces and also how we can stop it. The best part of the book is the water champion stickers.
I loved the book and recommend it to all children and their parents.
