Did you know that April is Earth Month? What a great time to get outdoors and explore nature!
If you’re looking for a good book to help celebrate the Earth this month, check out Whirl by Deborah Kerbel. It’s a fun story about a maple tree seed pod that gets picked up by the wind and goes on a wild adventure!
Here’s what Chirp reader Thelonious thought of this book:
“I liked it. The part where the kids pretend that the maple keys are eyebrows and mustaches and walrus tusks was the funniest part. I like following the line of the maple keys with my finger when they fall. My favorite part was when the blue jay took the maple key! Other kids would maybe like it. I want to read it again!”
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Thelonious!
