World Nature Conservation Day 2021

World Nature Conservation Day 2021

Books that help a child * Wonder * Understand * Care * Save * 

What is nature? Is it a rainbow or the mountain ranges? The sky or the seas?

The plants or 
peacocks? Bananas or bees? Where is it, can I see it?

Lastly, where is it going and why 
should we save it?

We turn off lights for an hour every Earth Day. We’ve switched from plastic to all-natural

paper or cloth bags, and to paper or metal straws. We’ve learnt to carry our own water

bottles wherever we go... All small steps to reduce, reuse, recycle, in the hope of leaving a

better world for our children. But how do we best prepare them to sustain ecosystems, to

preserve wildlife and biodiversity from degradation in their future?

How do we teach them 
to nurture nature, to be “good ancestors”?

Celebrating World Nature Conservation Day (28 July),

here are a wide range of books that take children of all ages on a journey through sky

and sea, land and rivers, to make friends with nature, to meet animals,
