Coming Save the Planet Brigade
May 12, Natural Mothers: True Stories of Animal Mothers in the Wild
Every Sunday at 2 pm, kids of all ages will save the planet the fun way at Bank Street Bookstore: by participating in arts and crafts projects enriched by a world of books and led by Bookstore staff and visiting artists.
Endangered animals, climate change, recycling, the rain forest, environmental justice and pollution are among the topics we will explore in a series of free hands-on workshops designed for kids who care, and want to make a difference in the world.
Students will have the chance to mail copies of their creations to government officials and decision-makers around the globe who need to learn what kids think about how grownups are doing at the all-important job of preserving their home planet.
