This was a wonderful look at how science can be enriched by the knowledge of indigenous people. A look at a more reciprocal relationship with plants, animals and our overall environment. Love how eloquently she blends personal recollections and research with facts and native folklore.

November reading recap: Last month, 17 of 29 books read rated high enough to make the list. https://debbybrauer.org/#november-2021-recap

[Now that I've caught up with November (which was atypically high) I'm only a tiny bit behind on reviews. After today or tomorrow, my reading posts should settle down for a bit, fingers crossed!]

readingjedi I read The Day the Crayons Quit in November too! And October. And September. And August. And every other month too. In fact, it and the sequel are probably my most read books of this year 😅 8h
JoyBlue @readingjedi That's awesome! 😎 You cracked me up! 😂 5h
readingjedi @JoyBlue 7 year olds are relentless! Luckily now it's December I get to read her the Christmas one as well 🤦🏼‍♀️ 4h

Most rabbits have, in their skill set, the ability to pretend that they're healthy even when they're quite sick.

This is such a moving tribute to both words and nature. A divine writer, Kingsolver is.

After seeing his illustrations for The Day the Crayons Quit last week, I‘m on an Oliver Jeffers kick. In addition to this book, I have two more children‘s books both written and illustrated by Jeffers waiting near the top of my TBR list.

An Irish teenager with Asperger's and a deep love of the natural world becomes an inspiration for many along the way as he shares his love and advocates on behalf of the environment. It's a beautifully written book of a young man learning about himself, teaching its readers about the struggles of those on the spectrum, and to appreciate the natural world around them.
