Connecting Children and Nature
As the season changes from summer to fall, the cycle of another school-year begins. Our September collection of 40% off books celebrates Seasons and Cycles–engaging read alouds to capture the attention of an entire class or for independent reading during a quiet time.
Lifetimes presents the “big picture” of kinds of life cycles, from 1 day (the lifetime of a Mayfly) to 20 years (the lifetime of a Penguin) to 20,000, 000 years (the lifetime of the Universe).
Other books introduce such diverse topics as the energy cycle through food chains, the plant life cycle from seed to plant and back to the soil, world-wide animal migration cycles, the yearly cycle of months through the seasons, and the daily cycle of night and day.
As part of our 40th anniversary, we’re offering a 40% discount on a collection of books every month throughout the entire year. Every book, every author, and every illustrator will be featured at some time this year. See all of the books at the Year-at-a-Glance List.
You’ll automatically receive the 40% discount when you order books through this website or by phone (530) 274-7775.
Around and around life goes with this month’s collection of books!
