Benefits of Environmental Education

According to United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), there are four reasons to provide children with environmental education:

  • To make them more aware and conscious of environmental problems.
  • To boost their interest in caring for and improving the environment.
  • To enhance their ability to learn about their surroundings.
  • To broaden their ecological knowledge in subjects such as landscapes, air, water, natural resources and wildlife.

Esie Explores Beneficial Bacteria

cover

Esie leaves her twin Es behind to explore a world teeming with beneficial bacteria. Could Esie be one of them? Or is she just a nasty germ, as some people say? On her rugged journey through air, water, and a cow’s guts, Esie meets new friends who help her find the answers she seeks.

Esie Explores Beneficial Bacteria reassures kids that the world isn’t always a scary place. Not all bacteria cause disease: many bacteria are beneficial, and life on our planet would be impossible without them.

Esie’s story of friendship and discovery is accompanied by lively illustrations and scientific facts about bacteria. Yet the facts don’t distract from the story. Kids (ages 6-8) can enjoy Esie’s adventures and decide which facts they want to read, and when. A young reader, who previewed the book, wondered: “Since this is such an interesting subject for kids . . . why has no one written a book like this before?”

Esie Explores Beneficial Bacteria concludes with a glossary and an activity section about the diverse bacteria introduced in this story.
