According to Chelsea Clinton, she has always been a dedicated environmentalist. Even as a child she tried to change for the better the world in which she lived, said Chelsea Clinton.
That is why she decided to write a book so that she can inspire other young people to take care of the planet.
Chelsea Clinton’s first book will tackle big issues, such as poverty, climate change and homelessness, combining it with real stories of teenagers and kids who succeeded in making a difference by changing something at home or at a global level.
Her book is scheduled to come out on September 15 and was written especially for young audience between the aged of 10 and 14.
Chelsea Clinton explained why she decided to write a book on environmental issues targeted for pre-teens and teenagers saying that she started getting into these issues at about the same age. She tuned in more issues that she cared about and was convinced that she had to do something in order to make a difference, Chelsea stated.
In an interview with People magazine Chelsea Clinton declared that one of her favorite books as a child had been “50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth”.
She said that she remembers wishing there were other books like that which tackled some of the important environmental issues she cared about.
With her first book, Chelsea Clinton said that she wants to do just that: helping kids help the planet or at least make them more aware about the issues that are very important for our planet in modern times.
Clinton revealed that the idea of writing a book on environmental issues came to her a while back, before she became pregnant.
However, after her daughter Charlotte was born Clinton said she knew this was the perfect time to write the book.
According to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s daughter, she wanted her daughter, who is now seven months old, to grow up and live in a world where young kids are well informed about what is happening around them.
Clinton said that in our times kids should feel empowered to make a difference and take responsibility on the issues they care about.
Now that she is a mother, Chelsea Clinton said that it was the best time to make it happen.
