These days, I cannot imagine a subject more important than sharing books that celebrate nature and its worth—also relaying the importance of keeping our shared “home” healthy.Such literature will encourage environmental stewardship, create a generation that recognizes and understands the value, yet fragility, of Earth’s resources, and propagate a general consensus as to the manner in which humanity must preserve, conserve, and protect such resources that ensures the well-being of all life forms.
