Holiday Book Fair with Natural Start
Date and Time:
Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 12:00pm
Winter is here, the holidays are upon us, and it's a great time for thinking about books! Join the Natural Start community for a holiday book fair on December 16 at 12 pm ET.
Natural Start is thrilled to welcome back Dr. Michelle Martin, the keynote speaker during our virtual conference earlier this year. Michelle will be reading one of her favorite books, followed by opportunities for you to share some of your favorites in small groups. You’ll also hear from Dr. Carla Gull, creator of the Loose Parts Nature Play podcast. Carla writes book reviews for the International Journal of Early Childhood Environmental Education and will be highlighting a few wintery classics during the forum.
Get comfortable and bring your favorite books to share with children and friends as we prepare for the holiday season and a new year ahead! This forum will not be recorded, but we will share a summary of resources and book recommendations after the live discussion.
Get Ready to Share!
An important piece of this forum is hearing from each other about books we recommend. Take a few minutes to gather your favorite books to share, and in particular, think about sharing:
- An inclusive children’s book (books and stories that positively reflect the broad array of experiences of children and adults, including racial, ethnic, cultural, gender, economic, ability, sexual orientation, or other types of diversity)
- A children’s book that you love to read during winter
- A book for adults about nature, especially one that grounds you in your practice or helps you reset as this year winds down and a new one begins
