Strive for a greener life
This book features two contrasting worlds: Grey City, with no trees but smog, dirt, and pollution, and Green Town, whose quality of life is drastically better than in Grey City. Comparing it in today’s society is like comparing an urban city and a rural province. Undoubtedly, it isn’t easy to live in a place with pollutants here and there. It’s harder to focus and dangerous for one’s well-being. The inhabitants are also at risk of getting various diseases. A place like Green Town is like a breath of fresh air everyone should strive for.
Always go ‘’Out of the box.”
If not because of their dog, Buster, Noah, and Mila wouldn’t be able to discover a place like Green Town; they wouldn’t know that there’s a much better place than the world they’ve learned. The book encourages us to get out of our comfort zones, from the title itself, Out of the Box: A New World. We shouldn’t stay in our tiny cages; there’s much more to experience outside. Step out into the world and explore; you’ll never know what awaits you in your adventure.
You’re not too young to make a change.
Lucia Matuonto perfectly crafted characters that can serve as role models for children. Noah and Mila’s determination to help change the world is an excellent motivator for kids and teens to take action. Age doesn’t matter when it comes to our environment. Everyone can make a change in their little ways. Out of the Box is the perfect book for young readers; it entails a hopeful message while tackling relevant issues like climate change.
