“Tania Moloney makes saving the natural world FUN!"

richard louv

Author “Last Child in the Woods” and “Vitamin N"



“I found the book enchanting! The illustrations are wonderful, and Nature Ninja’s voice is lively. Together they pulled me in as a reader right away.

The story is the right bite-size to captivate young children and give them something they can do at home or in their schoolyard to follow Nature Ninja’s inspiration.”

DR LOUISE cHAWLA

Professor Emerita, Environmental Design,
University of Colorado Boulder
Co-author, "Placemaking with Children and Youth: Participatory Practices for Planning Sustainable Communities"



“Nature Ninja is the perfect inspiration for children to save the natural world in their own ways.”

Tash Treveton

Early Childhood Consultant, Inspired EC



“Saving the world in the face of biodiversity loss and global climate change will be a tall order, but Nature Ninja knows a great place start - in your own backyard!

Nature Ninja Saves the Natural World is an actionable tale that shows how we all can contribute to a better world by advocating for nature in our families and communities.”

Linda Åkeson McGurk

@Rainorshinemamma & Author of There’s No Such Thing as Bad Weather & The Open Air



“I am so excited to share Nature Ninja's first adventures with my school students. My students will be excited that Nature Ninja deep listens like we do at school.

As a Principal whose school philosophy encapsulates nature throughout our whole curriculum, there will be so many teaching and learning opportunities to explore with Nature Ninja.”

Principal, Bullarto Primary School



"This delightful book is sure to inspire a new generation of nature warriors!

The story beautifully illustrates simple activities for children to rewild their gardens, while gathering some environmental pearls of wisdom along the way. I can’t wait to share it with my grandchild and start on our first Nature Ninja project!"

“Tania's book, 'Nature Ninja' reflects her passion & love for nature.

Her cute little book, Nature Ninja addresses the most pertinent aspect of how everyone can make a difference, irrespective of where one comes from or whether one is an adult or kid. Nature Ninja is fun & reassuring and would resonate with many around the world!”

Priya muthukumar

Environmental Storyteller, Educator,
Founder of Storipur, India



"A well written and engaging story, pitched at young children to teens and beyond, in a call to arms to heed the warnings and take practical action on climate change. 

Part educational, part prescriptive in its approach to positively encourage and demonstrate the power of individual action.

The suggestions are appealing to young people and the absence of politics is refreshing."
