Here are some of my favorite books about nature, kids in nature, and just all around good reads.  I link to bookshop.org to help support local bookstores instead of large corporations!  This list is new (2-2-2021) and I hope to continuing to add to it as I find and read quality literature, non-fiction and field guides.

A Black boy's transformative day out in nature, recommended by Social Justice Books and We Are Kid Lit Collective
Rodney is that kid who just can't sit still. He's inside, but he wants to be outside. Outside is where Rodney always wants to be. Between school and home, there is a park. He knows all about that park. It's that triangle-shaped place with the yellow grass and two benches where grown-ups sit around all day. Besides, his momma said to stay away from that park. When Rodney finally gets a chance to go to a real park, with plenty of room to run and climb and shout, and to just be himself, he will never be the same.
