Earth Month: Reading List

April is Earth Month, where we reflect on our planet and the ways in which we can take care of it. Our children will be provided with various learning opportunities around the theme this month, including learning about recycling, planting, and conserving water. We believe that it is important to instill love and respect for our planet in our children from a young age, and we are excited to celebrate with them.

For our families that want to continue their children’s education at home, reading is a fantastic way to teach about new topics and inspire action. The books below have been hand-selected by our Director of Learning Environments as excellent material to engage children in the topics related to Earth Month and caring for our planet.
