More About the Author

Sheri Amsel's interest in the outdoors began in her teens working summers for a Wilderness Program in Vermont. Trained and mentored by their wilderness guides, Sheri began taking groups of kids into the Canadian Rockies, Wind Rivers in Wyoming, Zirkel Wilderness in Colorado, and the Green, White and Adirondack Mountains of the Northeast. Sheri then went on to receive degrees in botany and zoology from the University of Montana, a Masters degree in anatomy and biomedical illustration from Colorado State University and a summer internship at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC in scientific illustration. Sheri then taught science at three colleges before starting to publish field guides and children's books with nature and environmental education topics. All along her goal was to inspire fascination with wild places and lead kids (and their parents) outside to explore. Since then Sheri has visited more than 300 schools nationally with science programming and professional development, spoken at National Conferences (NSTA, STANYS, AAAS) on integrating outdoor education into classroom science, helped dozens of schools develop educational nature trails, and created more than 5,000 pages of online science resources for use by schools worldwide. In 2009, Sheri was awarded the Elizabeth Abernathy Hull Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Environmental Education of Youths, by the Garden Club of America. Sheri lives with her husband in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York.

Format: Paperback
I picked this book up because I wanted to work on doing some summer learning with my 6 1/2 and 7 year olds. I've only just started going through it and LOVE it! Almost every page has an activity related to what it's teaching. It's not about being an environmentalist, but helps explain our planet so we know how we effect it. It's really well written and fun to go through. Great summer read!

I ordered this book to help teach children about the environment. I am in a women's club and we go to a local primary school and give programs. This month we are featuring conservation. The book was filled with a great amount of information. I am sure I will use it many times.

If you're looking for ways to encourage your child to be more environmentally conscious this a book for you. It has special crafts, and projects you can do to help your child go green. We loved how they provide instructions on how to make your own recycled paper!
