My Top 10 Books About Nature
|Uno's Garden by Graeme Base - This book has to be my all time favorite nature book! I simply adore the message it sends.|
|The Lorax by Dr Seuss - With bright pictures and the usual silliness of the good Dr S, this book is fabulous for younger children. It also provides an important message for older students!|
|Tall Tall Tree by Anthony D Fredericks - This is a must have for any classroom! There are so many different lessons that it can be used for.|
|Where the Forest Meets the Sea by Jeannie Baker - Delve into the imagination of a young boy and his father as they explore a beach and rainforest.|
|The Hidden Forest by Jeannie Baker - Another stunning book by the very talented Jeannie Baker, The Hidden forest explores marine life.|
|The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson - This is a fabulous story about marine life (and a little lesson about helping others too!).|
|Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert - Featuring vivid illustrations, this book helps children to understand how to plant bulbs, seeds, and seedlings. It then supports readers to nurture the growth of young plants.|
|Stick Man by Julia Donaldson - Admittedly this book isn't specifically about nature, but I've used this book many times to remind children of the importance of caring for plants.|
|The Five Colors of Our Nature Walk by Latisha Jones - This book is a fabulous springboard for taking your class on a nature walk.|
|A Seed is Sleepy by Dianna Aston - An informative introduction to seeds. A Seed is Sleepy is full of interesting facts for children.|
This list is certainly not an exhaustive list, there are heaps of great books that can be used to support learning about nature.
