Our April Earth Day Themed Book Picks

I can’t believe we are at the end of the month already. We received our April book picks from DK Books this week, and they have been coming handy to help with homeschooling and keeping the boys entertained.

Since April is all about Earth, and we are celebrating Earth Day on April 22nd, most of our choices were books about the environment, how to make a better word, recycling, and more.

So without further ado, our picks for this month are below. Note that you can order them on Amazon and get them delivered directly to your home in just a few days, also note one of the books is on preorder and will be available sometime in April.
