If polar bears disappeared

2018

by Lily Williams

"A nonfiction picture book tracing the repercussions of what would happen if polar bears disappeared from our planet. The freezing ecosystem in the far north of the globe is home to many different kinds of animals. They can be strong like a walrus, tough like a lemming, and sometimes hard to see like the polar bear. Their habitat is melting at an alarming rate. As the Arctic ice melts, polar bears are threatened with extinction, which could affect their environment in negative ways. Lily Williams explores how such a loss would affect other environments and animals across the Arctic and the negative impact across the planet."--

Maisy is never patient. She hates waiting for her birthday, waiting to talk, waiting for attention from her sister. She interrupts, scowls, and stomps around. Everyone gets mad, and Maisy feels bad. After talking with her sister about ways to make waiting easier, Maisy starts a new approach. Eventually, she learns that having patience makes life calmer--and sometimes much nicer.

Get outdoors

2018

by Paul Christelis and Elisa Paganelli

It’s a beautiful day, but Jada and her brother Michael are staying indoors—until Dad invents a game to get them exploring nature: whoever notices the most interesting things is the winner. At first, they just see grass and flowers. But by slowing down, looking closely, and using all of their senses, they soon begin to notice lots more about the natural world. Through practicing mindfulness this way, Jada and Michael find that small things they might not have noticed before seem so much more interesting.
