Caring for the Earth and for Others: Children's Books for Social Justice and the Environment
Wheeler, Edyth
Childhood Education, v85 n1 p32-F Fall 2008
Teachers often wonder how to add social justice and care for the environment to an already packed curriculum. Books and the ensuing conversations with children are a way to re-imagine the curriculum, rather than adding to it. Fiction and nonfiction books allow children to travel beyond what they know and live into the lives of others. This article lists children's books for social justice and the environment.
