Just in time for Earth Day, there's a new book out from Green Sugar Press that helps teach kids the A to Z's of going green. Written by Tim Magner ad illustrated by Aubri Vincent-Barwood, An Environmental Guide from A to Z, combines soft, eye-catching illustartions with well-written environmental prose to help kids develop a deeper understanding for the natural world and the history of environmentalism.
From the Green Sugar Press website:
"The Environmental Guide from A to Z uses people, places, and concepts to reveal how the countless pieces and parts of nature weave, connect, and link everything together. "
Each section also helps kids to relate what they're reading about to their own surrounding environment, with questions like "How many types of insects live in your backyard?" "Have you made a map of your local community?" and "Ever grown a tree?" Basic enough for a kindergarterner, but challenging enough for a twelve year old, An Environmental Guide from A to Z is an excellent read to share with your kids this Earth Day.
