In addition to our novels and reviews, we’re excited about something new we’ve added to THOUGHTS ON THIS ‘n THAT!
For all the moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grand-parents, teachers, educators who follow our blog, and might be interested in something special for the youngsters in your life to read, we’re introducing THE GREEN KIDS CLUB.
What is the Green Kids Club?
The Green Kids Club is designed to teach young children ( years 5-11) the importance of environmental stewardship through picture books. The series was developed to teach children the importance of protecting habitats, to sustain ecosystems, animal and ultimately human life. Difficult environmental issues such as poaching, habitat, encroachment, etc. are part of our stories.
The African Bush Fires and the Elephant
This is our latest Green Kids Club story for kids between 5 – 11. The Green Kids tackle the problem of bush fires in Africa, poachers, and learning to be safe in this environment.
In this part of series, Victor, Maya and Tiago travel to Botswana to meet Maatla. They’ve been selected by the Grand Council of Animals to drink from a magic spring that enables them to talk to the animals and also do some photo safari time – hopefully to see the elephants! But instead they encounter a large bush fire started by poachers! The children with the animals of the land and men of the village help to make a difference!
This book is co-authored by Kelly Landen, Program Manager of Elephants Without Borders – and working closely with the Botswana Department of Forestry and Range Resources.
This book also has a science section in the back. 50% of proceeds will go to Elephants Without Borders or a non-profit group of your choice committed to helping animals or teach children the importance of environmental stewardship!
