Summary
Pairing a book with such activities as a trip to the zoo, a nighttime look at the stars, or a walk in the forest can connect children to nature while inspiring discussion and questions. Teacher and librarian Kathleen T. Isaacs spotlights recent informational and picture books appropriate for children ages up to 10 that will help parents and caregivers encourage children's wonder and enthusiasm for nature. Themed chapters such as Backyard and Garden, From the Earth to the Sky and Beyond, Plants and Trees, Animals in Captivity, and Children's Songs and Traditional Tales identify titles on nature-related subjects that kids love, while also offering supplemental activities that adults and children can do together, such as a backyard bird count and things to look for at an aquarium. The hundreds of quality books listed and annotated in this resource will enrich the joy and excitement of nature for readers of all ages
