      Hi Thia,

      For some idea of what the content is like, we’ve posted two excerpts from Letters to My Grandchildren here (In Search of Roots), and here (Why Do Sports Matter?). For a more broad description of the book, see the book page here.

      The package also comes with a copy of The Legacy, where David speaks about our current global situation and his inspiring vision for the future.

      Hope this helps, let us know if there’s any other information that you’d like!

    I am a big fan of David Suzuki, and my husband and I watch the Nature of Things, one of the few TV shows that are quite inspiring and educational at this level of science and learning about our earth.

    It (The Nature of Things) is an ideal avenue for young children, older teens, adults etc….who really would like to explore more of the evolution of our earth as we see it, and through the eyes of scientists, anthropologists and their earlier and latest findings of our planet and life that has evolved and we live with today, in all different parts of the world, to what it has become today and what it will be tomorrow.

    My husband and I are grandparents now, and watching the Nature of Things helps educate an audiance that is young, curious and thriving today, a society that is adopting a whole new idea of how to transform this planet we call earth, to preserve it and make it a healthy and happy place in which to live.

    Personally, David Suzuki has given his life to this work and helping the transfer of what it means to go from a plastic, industrial society to a society that is health friendly, to both the environment, the animal life and to our life.

    I would love one of David Suzuki s books, to pass on to my grandchildren, so that their lives can be enriched as mine has been, and their way thinking of the good that can come to this world by re-thinking!

    Thank you to all the people who assisted Dr. David Suzuki to put together such a library an share it with the world, in order for the world to become re-educated in order to make this place we live in, a better place for all concerned to live in.

      Hi Pat,

      Thanks for this inspiring passage! It’s the perfect summary of David’s work over the years, and a great analogy for what he wants to achieve with Letters to My Grandchildren. If you haven’t seen it already, please give these two excerpts from Letters to My Grandchildren a read, and let us know what you think:
