Spring After Spring | Book Review

“SPRING AFTER SPRING,

YEAR AFTER YEAR,

A YOUNG GIRL WATCHED

AND LISTENED.”

Synopsis

Rachel Carson lived her life by the rhythms of the natural world. She heard when the birds started their songs and when the insects joined in. She saw the days grow short and the geese fly south. And so it was Rachel who noticed when the birds stopped singing and the spring went silent. It was Rachel who could see how the music of nature had been disrupted and who was to blame. And what she saw and head scared her.

This is the story of how a life of observation and bravery changed the course of environmental science and continues to inspire the young naturalists of today.

#MelAndNikkiReview

Spring After Spring is a charming and inspiring children’s book how one voice can have an impact. The writer Stephanie tells the story beautifully and the illustrations are captivating. We loved learning about Rachel Carson and the environmental movement that she began. There is so much we can learn from her story and it also helps us realize that there is so much more that we need to learn about the environment. Our plant is very fragile and we all need to work together to protect it.

We especially loved the author’s note in the back of the book as it gave us a (little) deeper look at Rachel Carson and what she inspired. This children’s book showcased an empowering story that all children should read. It is important to know history as it will help us learn for the present and for the future.

“The balance of nature is build on a series of relationships between living things and their environment.” – Rachel Carson

Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview we give Spring After Spring 5 Chirps out of 5! It is recommended for children between the ages of four and eight.

The Nature Girls | Book Review

We are surrounded by nature and it is truly a beautiful sight when we take it all in.

It is also important for children to learn about  nature and what better way then through a book. We are delighted to introduce you all to, The Nature Girlsby Aki.

Synopsis

Aki’s The Nature Girls is a picture book starring an adorable troupe of girls exploring different biomes – the ocean, the dessert, the tundra, the grasslands, the forest – and meeting all the cute animals that inhabit them.

#MelAndNikkiReview

The Nature Girls is a delightfully charming art showcases the girls in scenes outdoors with bright, vivid colors. Aki’s simple lines bring this world of nature fully to life!

We absolutely loved this adorable book! It flows beautifully and the illustrations are simply perfect. The book is written in rhyme which is our favorite type of books to read. At the end of the book you get a brief description of each biomes which is very educational for all, including parents. 🙂

We have read this book several times as Nikki can’t get enough of it. She loved it so much that she wanted to tell everyone herself in this exclusive #MelAndNikkiReview video. You will need to click and watch to hear what we give The Nature Girls. 😉
