Saving the planet starts at home, and kids can help! Doug Tallamy, professor in the Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, seeks to inspire the next generation of conservationists with “NATURE’S BEST HOPE YOUNG READERS’ EDITION: How You Can Save the World in Your Own Yard” (Timber Press).  The new book is a middle-grade adaptation of his New York Times bestseller, Nature’s Best Hope that inspired Inspiring thousands of homeowners to embrace a grassroots approach to conservation.  Nature’s Best Hope is a guide to fighting the decline in wildlife populations through the use of native plants. Now, kids can join the Homegrown National Park movement and learn how to protect the planet through small and approachable acts of conservation in their own backyards!

Featuring over a hundred explanatory photographs and illustrations, “Nature’s Best Hope Young Readers’ Edition” breaks down the complex topics of conservation, ecology, and biodiversity into kid-friendly terms and real-world examples, making it perfect for parents, caregivers, and educators looking to explore these subjects with children.

Not only does Doug share the science of climate change, but he also encourages children to take direct action. With projects as big as planting a native oak tree to as small as growing bee-loving asters, kids will learn how to fight climate change in their own backyard! By helping the next generation see that they have power and agency over our collective future, this empowering movement will drive home the positive point that kids are truly nature’s best hope.
