Caring for the living things that share our planet starts early. Our children and grandchildren will make the choices that may make the difference between extinction and survival for many species. Help them understand the science behind wildlife conservation while discovering potential careers and experiencing inquiry-based science at home.
The Conservation Tales books are more than just stories about animals! Each story is based on the work of real scientists who study the animals in the wild. The illustrations and photos help children learn what scientists do. Each book also has conservation actions you can do at home, and inquiry learning activities for school, home, or after-school settings.
Click the menu links to see more about each book! You can find some educational links and behind-the-scenes photos on the Extras page!
The first volume, The Cerulean Warbler, has been joined by six other volumes! See the Books tab in the menu to find out how to order a copy. Educators, check out the teacher discount if you are ordering for your classroom or nature center.
