Children's
Nature in Novels


Here at Powell's, we like eco-inspired books, but we also like a good story. Luckily, there are plenty of great kids' novels out there that satisfy both desires. Jacqueline Kelly's debut, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, is one of our favorites, as is Ida B. by Katherine Hannigan. Carl Hiaasen's ecological mystery Hoot has adventure and nature. For some nonfiction, we offer you Recycle This Book, in which famous children's book authors share eco-friendly ideas!
