Sparky's Big Idea... 
Protecting our planet and teaching children the importance of the environment and sustainability is not only part of the curriculum, but of great social significance as we strive to handover a healthier planet to our future generations. Sparky’s Big Idea from the Police Community Clubs of Great Britain deals with the issues of recycling, sustainability and the importance of looking after the environment. 
 
Sparky Fox tries to tell everyone to recycle and save energy but nobody will listen until the Treetop Council announce that they will need to cut down an area of forest to supply wood for the winter, this includes cutting down the tree where Echo Squirrel lives.  
 
It’s time for change and with Sparky’s help, Echo starts an Eco Club. 
 
The book is punctuated by activities that develop the learning objectives for the children. 
Sparky’s Big Idea is a fun and interactive support to children’s citizenship education in primary schools.
