On April 22, 1970 the first Earth Day, millions of Americans mobilized to draw attention to a looming environmental crisis brought about by toxins and pollution. Forty-two years later, Earth Day has become a national day of awareness, but the environmental crisis still looms, focused now on climate change. SB&F has put together a list of our top environmental books to help the consumer make informed, eco-friendly choices and to encourage children to take an active role in saving the environment.
This bibliography contains recommendations for books for all ages, ranging from kindergarten through adult. Some of the titles focus on climate change and others included hands-on science actvitiies. This bibliography would be a good starting point for classes working on projects related to weather and climate change. The adult level books would be a good source for indepth study or for teacher professional development.
