Pollinators are essential to a thriving Mother Earth! So many different insects help us to grow our food, but we tend to focus on honeybees when we talk about pollinators. Yet even if we focus on bees, honeybees are only 1 of the 25,000 different bee species!
Holy bees knees!
Why are the pollinators important?
Pollinators keep our world growing and thriving, but we are out-of-balance with Mother Earth just now and creating a world where the pollinators, animals and plants are struggling. The beauty of our world is essential to our own well-being and I love sharing these books with you and your kiddos - they remind us of simple wonders and encourage us to be better stewards of the planet!
12 Exceptional Picture Biographies
Children love to learn about real heroes! July is when we read books about artists, musicians, astronomers, pilots, scientists, athletes, explorers - all ordinary people who have changed the world and are worthy of sharing with your children.
Sharing with our children how others have become heroes and heroines requires books that are not preachy or boring. Books about people with all the character traits we want to see in our kiddos must be exceptional - exceptional writing and exceptional illustration.
Here are 12 books that more than meet these requirements! Enjoy!
January and February are dark months in the Northern Hemisphere - colder, wetter, shorter days. Add to normal winter weather the crazy snow and rain storms bombarding North America and you've got a solid recipe for sadness and depression. As parents and grandparents, we are responsible for helping our kiddos develop resilience in the face of difficult circumstances.
And I am a firm believer that one of the best ways to do this is to share hope- and love- filled books with our children, regardless of their age.
The February Stories Matter books have been selected to help you build the habits of resilience with your children:
