The Green Dragon (with Suzanne Younan)

The Green Dragon with Suzanne Younan | The Green Dragon 與Suzanne Younan


The Green Dragon is old and wise, befriended by many. When his friends are hurt by plastic pollution, he feels anger and despair – until a young boy comes to his rescue in more ways than one. This book tackles the topic of plastic in the ocean and how it affects sea creatures, helping to build empathy and instill a sense of responsibility for our actions.

A difficult topic to raise with young children, Suzanne Younan’s story presents a challenging situation with empathy and hope, when Leo, the hero of the story takes the message to his community to promote change.

The Green Dragon年老但聰明,他不時得到各方好友的幫助。當他知道他的朋友受塑膠污染影響時,他感到既憤怒又絕望。後來,一位小男孩用不同方法幫助他和朋友們脫困。這本書圍繞着海洋塑膠污染問題,講述塑膠如何影響海洋生物,助讀者建立同理心,教導他們要為自己的行為負責。

由於這本書所涉及的環境議題對小朋友來說比較難吸收,所以作者以故事中的英雄角色-Leo向社區傳遞建立同理心和保持希望的訊息,宣揚環境改革。
