Seeds Move!, by Robin Page
Sure, animals are pretty great at building their homes, but seeds are nature’s real stunners of ingenuity. Seeds might seem inert, but in fact engage in all kinds of maneuvers to get themselves planted in a good spot. Robin Page’s vibrant illustrations and clear, detailed text show how seeds make their move, from sticktight seeds catching a ride on a passing raccoon, to exploding cucumber seeds ejecting from their pods, to coconuts traveling on ocean waves to find just the right deserted island to set down roots in.

While this imaginative title, in which a young girl dreams of a garden in which anything that’s planted can grow, might not offer much factual information, it gets a high score for sowing seeds of enthusiasm. Case in point: after my then-toddler first heard this story, he excitedly planted a jellybean in hopes of growing a “jellybean tree.” He’s still checking for a sprout over a year later. If nothing else, he’s learned that gardening often involves waiting. Its cheerful hopefulness earns this book a perennial place on our shelves.

Isatou Ceesay didn’t give much thought to the torn and worthless plastic bags building up in her village in West Africa, until the bags started killing her family’s goats. The goats had been eating the bags and were being choked from the inside by the indigestible plastic. Isatou had an idea. She convinced other young women to tear the bags into strips, and from those they crocheted strong and pretty purses. Some laughed at them, but when the purses started to sell, the laughter ended. Today Isatou’s village is much cleaner, the goats are safe, and other Gambian women come there to learn how to recycle. The bright illustrations bring Isatou’s home to life, and the story will inspire young readers!

Charlie and Lola: We are Extremely Very Good Recyclers, by Lauren Child and Bridget Hurst
Lola loves keeping things, even broken, old useless things. But when Lola and her brother Charlie take a peek at the bedroom of their friend Marv’s big brother, Lola is appalled by the horror of its mess.  So Lola decides to throw her stuff away. Charlie suggests that she recycle things instead, because if everything were thrown away, piles of garbage would cover everything. Inspired, Lola enters a recycling competition to win her very own tree to plant. Realizing she can’t do it alone, she enlists her classmates, and soon all the kids are collecting recyclables and then rejoicing in the new tree they won for their school. It’s a great introduction to the reason why we should recycle, and though there’s not much detail about what actually can be recycled, it gets the point across very nicely within the framework of an engaging story.

This is the true story of a woman who adopted a baby rhino. Anna Merz was horrified by the slaughter of rhinos by poachers, and decided to take action. She was able to establish a wildlife sanctuary in Kenya, and when one of the baby rhinos born there was neglected by its mother, Anna took on the role of rhino mother herself. Samira the baby rhino loved and trusted Anna, but of course rhinos grow, and Anna eventually had to push Samira away so that she could find her own place in the wild. Samira is as cute a baby animal as you can imagine, and hers is a sweet and loving story that will make young readers care about conservation (and possibly ask for a baby rhino of their own…).

The Tree Lady, by H. Joseph Hopkins and Jill McElmurry 
Kate Sessions was a girl who loved being outside with trees back, in the 1860s when girls weren’t supposed to get their hands dirty. But Kate did. And her love of nature became a love of learning, and she became the first woman to graduate with a degree in science from the University of California. When she moved to dry and dusty San Diego, she was unhappy to be living in a city with no trees. So she did something about it, and became an expert in trees that could live in such an arid place, and convinced the city to help her plant them. Thanks directly to Kate’s work and all the volunteers who joined her, San Diego is now a greener place both literally and figuratively. The book tells Kate’s story in simple words, but highlights her determination beautifully!

Puffling Patrol, by Ted and Betsy Lewin
Many puffins make their homes on the rocky cliffs of an Icelandic Island, and each year the grown-up puffins fly away before their babies can join them. The little pufflings, as the babies are called, leave their cliff nests a few days later, but many get confused, and land on the roads instead of in the ocean. They can’t take off again, and are at risk from cars and predators. That’s when the island’s kids, who are members of the Puffling Patrol, spring in to action, and head out  to rescue the stranded little birds! This book documents the island’s bird rescue efforts, focusing on a brother and sister who are members of the patrol. The illustrations are charming, and it’s heartening to see kids directly involved in saving the little pufflings.
