Nature Books For Kids
Nature is a gentle teacher for children as they learn the skills and attitudes that will lead them to lifelong happiness and success. The examples and messages in Wonderful Nature, Wonderful You support children in remembering how wonderful they are, but they’re so much more than simple esteem boosters. They offer reassurance and guidance about how to perseverance, accept change, meet challenges, trust themselves, get along with others, and have fun. These messages are great for adults, too!
Every year the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and in cooperation with the Children’s Book Council (CBC) selects the most outstanding science trade books.
Tall Tall Tree has just been selected for this prestigious honor! Young readers explore the wildlife in a redwood tree through counting, rhyme, and some hidden surprises.
Reading science trade books is the perfect way for students to build literacy skills while learning science content.

Early experiences in nature enrich and shape a child’s life. That was one of the messages that came through so clearly in the new movie about Jane Goodall.
As a young girl she spent hours outside, climbed trees, and watched her dog’s behavior. As an adult she rocked the scientific community through her groundbreaking discoveries. How did you make her discoveries? Doing the same things she did as a child! She spent hours outside where the chimps lived, climbed trees, and closely watched their behavior.
In the book Going Home children gain new appreciation for the amazing journeys that many animals take twice a year.
Going home, going home, we feel the urge to go.
Its time for us to travel on, it’s something we just know.
Many of us look for food, others find a mate.
And when the weather starts to change, there is no time to wait.
