Good News out today!
Rashmi Sirdeshpande's latest non-fiction title, Good News: Why the World is Not as Bad as You Think, publishes today. An empowering and uplifting guide to seeing the world in a more positive light, this is Rashmi's follow-up title to Dosh, her guide to all things finance, which was published by Wren and Rook.
Pandemics, war, terror, natural disasters - the world seems to be full of bad news and it can all feel, well, a little bit scary. But this is just part of the story. There are in fact tons of great things happening, from robots improving health care and trees healing the planet, to everyday people helping their community with acts of kindness and the businesses fighting for good in the world.
In Good News, children will learn to become fake news detectives, sussing out what's real and what isn't. They'll discover the good news - the amazing anecdotes, case studies and figures around the globe that are making a difference. And they'll learn that if we all continue to work together, things can only keep getting better and better.
Empowering, reassuring and confidence-boosting, this book is a positive antidote for testing times.
