~Dr. Jane Goodall
Whatever my friend Amy Ludwig Vanderwater does, she does with her whole heart. She doesn't just talk about taking an interest in the natural world, she lives it.
Amy's poetry picture book Forest Has a Song came out this spring and she has kindly given me permission to share a poem from it:
by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater
a spicy breeze.
into my ear:
When you go home
do not forget
I am Forest.
I am here.
Some of my other favorite Earth Day/nature-related poems of Amy's include:
* Song for Garbage Day
* Animals All Know
* A OneFourKidLit interview with Amy
* Kids for Saving Earth
* Symphony of Science from Climate Reality (prose song)
* Earth Day from the Environmental Protection Agency
* Easy Eco Blog
I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.
