Nature’s Party – Dancing in the Streets
by Marjorie Brown-Anfelouss, Ed.D
Written during the COVID-19 pandemic, Nature's Party - Dancing in the Streets depicts how the environment reacted to the absence of humans. When people were prevented from being outdoors, animals seized the opportunity to explore.
A blend of science, social studies, and history, this book shows how the environment is affected negatively by humans on a daily basis. The story can teach children about the pandemic and also encourage an interest in nature.
