Great Books for Loving our Earth

We have a first year Daisy Girl Scout troop and have been looking for books and activities to share with them on helping our Earth, being kind and the importance of taking care of plants and animals. National Geographic has a couple that I jsut love!

A Seed is the Start (hardcover picture book, ages 6-9, $17.99) – Spring is about to, well, spring into action, and the magical seed is where it all begins.  Beautiful photography and lyrical text pair with comprehensive picture captions in award-winning author Melissa Stewart’s story about the surprisingly diverse world of seeds. Learn all about the plant cycle, from how seeds grow, the fascinating ways they travel, and what it takes for a seed to become a plant. The magic of spring, revealed!

100 Ways to Make the World Better (paperback, ages 8-12, $9.99) – Who says kids can’t change the world? If they’ve got the will, Nat Geo Kids can guide the way, with doable activities, hands-on projects, advice from National Geographic explorers, interviews with experts, weird-but-true facts, and more inspiration.  In keeping with the Nat Geo Kids mission, the book is full of practical, positive, and powerful ideas that every kid can consider, from simple acts of kindness to creative adventures to good-for-the-planet projects.  Ideas are presented as simple concepts with engaging graphics and photographs, and many are followed by detailed supporting information. Kids get a sense of their own power to make a difference and an understanding of what actions contribute to positive outcomes. Sometimes all it takes is starting with something simple, and before you know it, together we’ve reshaped our planet for the better.
