I feel learning to conserve and grow is knowledge we should all look into further. Any age, starting as early as you can, we should learn and have fun with being green and gardening. I find a lot of fun in searching for creative, interesting and informed books about these subjects. Three books we carry in Small World Gallery truly hit these spots and I am excited to share them with you.
Compost Stew -- Written by Mary McKenna Siddals
A wonderfully illustrated, rhythmic and alphabetical guide to what you can use from home to create your very own compost stew! I have used this book with my children from ages 18 months up, and they find it exciting and fun to have the knowledge on what to add to our compost. I also learned many new things I myself could add that I had never thought of. Wonderful for any age!
- The Curious Garden -- Written by Peter Brown
Learning the value of plant life around us, and how a boy enriches his community with the love of gardening. Teaching us all how a little bit of love and care can grow to touch so many in such a big way.
- What Does it mean to be Green -- Written by Rana DiOrio
Learning what it really means to be green is sometimes a very difficult concept for children (and adults). This book puts being green into simple and easily understood ideas, using examples from everyday task like brushing your teeth or picking up trash. Easy to read, fun to follow and playful illustrations, this book would work for ages 3 and up.
