Great Books About Nature for Children

In his eternal poem ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’ (1848) Cecil. F. Alexander penned:

Each little flow’r that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The purple-headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

Every child does not have the luxuries of getting up and seeing nature’s abundance outside their windows. It becomes imperative then to point them out to children. The dandelion that peeks between the granite or the shy bougainvillaea growing on a wall or the little ladybug, grasshopper or bee who lose their way and land on the study table or tab.

Numerous illustrators and writers have come out with some amazing books to capture the beauty around us that we must stop to take time and see, even if only for a minute. They strengthen us and lift our spirits in ways we can never fully explain.
