Great Reads for Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day! Of course every day should be Earth Day, but today is a great time to take stock of our habits (as individuals, families, classrooms, and communities) and challenge ourselves to make changes for the year to come.

Teachers always seem to have great ideas for books to introduce ideas and concepts to their students, so to compile an Earth Day reading list we went straight to the source. On our Facebook page this morning we asked, “What book do you share with others to promote positive change and encourage the protection of our environment?” As expected, we got many terrific suggestions and we wanted to share them with you here!

A few are available individually or in collections from Scholastic Reading Club online, and the rest can be found at your local library or bookstore.
