Ecology for the very young Aug 8, 2006
This beautifully illustrated book is an excellent introduction to conservation and ecology for 5-7 year olds. The illustrations are inviting, and the text helps draw in young readers.
Great book, positive and empowering environmental message. Dec 13, 1998
Story gently reminds us that our homes displaced wild areas and helps us think about how to remedy the damage. Great illustrations and a wonderful specific guide at the end showing simple yet significant ways children and adults can help, starting in their own yard.
