About the Book
The core message of this Little Explorer, Big World series is environmental conservation and sustainability. It tackles the concepts of cultural diversity and empowerment, global readiness and peace, entrepreneurship and climate change.
Pili imagines a peaceful place in the world for children. Her plan: it will be a forest reserve, and it will be in Colombia. This is not an easy goal for a little girl to accomplish. But Pili is determined; somehow, she will get this done!
“The children of the world—and little girls in particular—can use a few positive messages that will inspire them to aspire. This book has many such messages, tucked into a sweet, beautifully illustrated near-to-life narrative like little folded love-notes.”
