We encounter energy everywhere: when we switch on the lights, ride a bike or heat. But what exactly is energy? How is it created? How does it come to us and what environmentally friendly alternatives for generating and using energy are there for our future? This illustrated non-fiction book explains the most important basics and shows that although energy is a constant occurrence in everyday life, we should not waste it. A book for children aged 8 and up - and for the whole family. Written by Christina Steinlein, illustrated by Anne Becker.
