The Beeman by Laurie Krebs and Valerie Cis

A young boy shares his grandpa’s story of being a bee keeper and watches as his grandfather prepares honey. It also provides details about the different kinds of bees in a hive as well as the process for making honey. A recipe is included too, for the child who likes getting into the kitchen!

I Took the Moon for a Walk by Carolyn Curtis

Join a young boy as he takes an adventure in the evening and brings along the moon. Simple things of the evening are celebrated, such as night animals, changing clouds, and the stars.

Elusive Moose by Joan Gannij

This book introduces children to all kinds of outdoor wildlife that are often seen while hiking and others who are not easily spotted but can be identified by their footprints. But where does the moose hide, I wonder?

The Barefoot Book of Earth Poems by Judith Nicholls

This is a beautifully illustrated collection of poems that celebrates our wonderful planet. Some poem themes include respecting nature, conservation, and how to celebrate its beauty.
