There is a new book for children about climate change. The book is co-written by Charles III, the king of the United Kingdom. It is called "Climate Change". Charles is an environmentalist. He has spoken about the environment for decades. He speaks at climate change conferences all over the world. In his new book, he hopes children will learn more about the problems our planet is facing. The other co-writer of the book is Tony Juniper. He is chairperson of an organization called Natural England. He told reporters that he wanted to write a book for 7–11-year-olds. He said he wants "to bring the facts to the fingertips of the people who have got most to gain by finding [climate change] solutions in time."

Last Friday, Mr Juniper went to an event at Buckingham Palace in London. Charles hosted the event. He invited many business leaders. He asked them to help protect biodiversity. At the palace get-together, Juniper spoke about how excited Charles is that children want to help Earth. He said: "I think he's been struck by the level of energy and passion shown by young people on these subjects. He is keen to put something into their hands which is about basic ideas." King Charles wrote: "Ever since I was a young teenager, I have been deeply worried about the way we have shaped our world. I am pleased to see that children across the world are now raising the alarm and calling for big changes."
