A board book with puzzle pieces to raise awareness of environmental issues.
A Walk Around the Planet is an invitation for young children to build a more sustainable world with their little hands.
Thanks to simple questions and movable board pieces, toddlers will get involved in the story created by Martí and Salomó.
The puzzle-like board pieces and die-cuts of every scenery invite the reader to an on-and off-the-page play experience, while cleaning up rivers, protecting the ocean’s floor, building windmills and solar panels, helping animals in the savannah, replanting a forest or building a bridge.
As the African proverb says ”Lots of little people, doing little things, can change the world”. And as we say at Combel: Give me a puzzle piece, and I will move the world!
