Taking care of ourselves has a brand new meaning these days. As we are forced to slow down and also help our kids finish a school year off at home it is hard to ignore the topic of self-care. Not only are we to take care of ourselves, but it is a good time to remember that we are also tasked as a species to take care of our planet. I want to introduce these 3 children/tween books for summer reading that both cover the topic of conservations.
Here is page One of Explorer Academy: The Star Dunes by Trudi Trueit, the fourth book in the popular fact-based fiction series (National Geographic Kids’ Under the Stars; March 2020, for ages 8-12).
The Explorer Academy series is full of thrill, danger and global travels as Cruz Coronado at the Explorer Academy, where he and 23 other kids from around the globe will train to become the next generation of great explorers. This book sends Cruz down to Africa as he tries to solve the mystery of his own Mother’s disappearance. Face gorillas, poachers and cheetahs in his adventure. Buy the Book
This second book is full of those fun images we love from National Geographic. Chapter 5 is a great source for How to Save an Ocean. Of course, I am intrigued by science and research of the ocean so The images of the Research Lab is fascinating as well as all the pages in this book, Extreme Ocean: Amazing Animals, High-Tech Gear, Record-Breaking Depths and Much More by National Geographic Explorer Sylvia A. Earle (National Geographic Kids Books, March 2020, Ages 8-12. June 8th is World Ocean Day so this book is a great treat for the kids schoolwork that day! Buy the Book!
