Adding fiction and non-fiction books to your students’ learning can enrich and extend the learning experience into cross-curricular areas. Incorporating literature into nature, science, and environmental awareness curriculum and activities strengthens your ability to help your students discover the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in. This is just one way that environmental education is cross-curricular.

Drawing from the experience and recommendations of naturalists, childcare providers, early childhood professionals, K-12 teachers, older Iowa Supplements to Project WILD and Aquatic WILD, we have put together a database of books focused on a variety of nature-related topics.

Our book list is searchable by topic, age group, type of book, or keyword search. If there’s a title you think we should add let us know!
