This month’s books for young readers from the Will Rogers Library are about the environment. What Can We Do About Trash and Recycling? By Lorijo Metz can be found in the juvenile nonfiction section of the library. This easy to read book has several chapters on important issues such as What Happens To Trash? , Save a Tree and Composting. It’s never too early to help young readers care for the planet!
In the Woods: Who’s Been Here? By Lindsay Barrett George is a beautifully illustrated book about Cammy and William and their walk through the woods. As they walk they encounter many clues left by the animals. This is a lovely read aloud book to be shared with young children. It would be fun to have your own nature walk to look for clues after reading this book! RSU has a lovely nature trail that would be perfect!
Bird Songs by Betsy Franco and Steve Jenkins is another beautiful read aloud that’s perfect for spring reading. Each page poetically describes the songs of different birds along with dimensional illustrations. You may even recognize some of the birds from your own backyard! Both In the Woods and Bird Songs are available in the Early Readers section of the Will Rogers Library.
For older readers who love a chapter book we have the Wild Rescue series. In this series Ben and Zoe Woodward are twins who undertake top-secret missions for an environmental organization called WILD. Their missions are always changing, but their goal remains the same: save animals in danger and protect the environment-no matter what the risk. Rainforest Rescue is a mission in the jungles of Borneo where an orangutan has set up home on a dangerous palm oil plantation. Ben and Zoe arrive to try to help. Will it be a dangerous mission? Check out the Wild Rescue series in the Juvenile Fiction section of the library and find out!
Happy April Reading!
