Did you know the first Earth Day was celebrated April 22, 1970 and that The Lorax by Dr. Seuss was published in 1971? Coincidence? I think not! In honor of Earth Day I have put together of list books that will get you thinking about the environment. You should also give The Lorax a quick read (or reread!).
These are just a few books that have an environmental theme. I have only had a chance to read half of them (the bottom row). I have heard great things about Endangered by Eliot Schafer and my readers seem to love My Life in Pink and Green by Lisa Greenwald!
If these books don’t inspire you to hug (or even better, plant) a tree, I just don’t know what will!
While I am still way behind in my reading, I FINALLY finished those books that I have been reading for AGES!
Can you believe that this is my first time reading Little Women? I really enjoyed this one! I am so happy that there is going to be one more in the Ranger’s Apprentice series because the collection of short stories left me misty eyed more than once. Saints in the companion to Boxers, which I really enjoyed. I will work on a review this week. And good old Stephanie Plum is always good for a laugh.
I am almost finished with The Golem’s Eye by Jonathan Stroud. I think I like this second installment in the Bartimaeus series better than the first! With the weather getting nicer and my neurotic dog getting braver, I am getting in more walks. Which means more Playaways! I am currently listening to Caleb’s Crossing by Geraldine Brooks.
Currently Reading (print and e-books)
My next book on CD is Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. I am not sure what books I will read next. I am stock-piling for this weekend’s readathon!
