Beyond "The Lorax": Examining Children's Books on Climate Change
Boggs, George L.; Wilson, Nance S.; Ackland, Robert T.; Danna, Stephen; Grant, Kathy B.
Reading Teacher, v69 n6 p665-675 May-Jun 2016
Five teacher educators discuss children's literature addressing Earth's changing climate. They present tools for evaluating the quality of resources likely to help teachers and students stimulate conceptual and emotional development rather than anxiety or oversimplification. An annotated selection of current books along with a checklist to evaluate children's literature oriented toward issues of climate change is presented to help teachers choose appropriate literature for facilitating students' development of scientifically, socially, and ecologically responsible thinking and decision-making.
