Books Worth a Read:
Readers, young and old, will find stories that open their eyes to the mystery, power and wonder of nature more compelling than a video game or television show. If our children are going to learn to care about the environment and preserving the wonders that are out there, it is up to parents, teachers and other role models in their lives to foster that appreciation and that passion. Here are my suggestions:
* The Adventures of the Sizzling Six: Who Stole the Cahaba Lily? A Young Adult ecological mystery about the Cahaba Lily
* Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv
* Anthill by the renowned biologist E.O. Wilson
