Tell Me What the Earth is Saying, a new children’s book published 11/24/2021, captures the magic of the natural world and gives nature-loving parents and educators a beautiful way to share the wonderful things that can be found when you take the time to enjoy all of the beauty the great outdoors have to offer. Through rhythmic verse by first-time author Ginny Silver and whimsical illustrations by Maria Finchenko, Calvin decides that today is a good day for an adventure. Through exploring the forest, creek, rainstorms and more he finds that the natural world around him has everything he needs. He finds beauty, wisdom, support, strength, and happiness in each place. “…and the animals answered: ‘We are your friends, your companions, your brothers. We will help you to be playful, to be curious, and to be gentle. Our soft fur will be your hug and our eyes will be your comfort. With us, you will always feel loved.’” Forest school, home school, Waldorf, Reggio Emilia, and nature-loving educators and parents will find this book an essential addition to their library. “Beautifully lyrical and gorgeously illustrated story about the magic of a child’s bond with nature! This book perfectly captures the joy and magic of a childhood spent exploring the natural world. Anyone who has spent time in nature with their little one will treasure this book, a must-read for wild schoolers, forest schoolers and lovers of nature!” - Fun is Better than Perfect Blog “In raising my children, I have always tried to provide them with opportunities to connect with nature and enjoy getting outside, exploring, and getting dirty. I originally created Tell Me What the Earth is Saying as my son’s preschool graduation project - to commemorate a year spent at our beautiful mountain school exploring the forest as well as some of our favorite daily activities to do as a family - but when I shared it with others, I was encouraged to publish it and make it available for any nature loving parent or educator to share with their children. It is my hope that it brings joy to those with a deep love for the great outdoors and reminds children and adults alike to get outside, splash in a creek, make a mud pie, climb a tree and enjoy our beautiful world,” stated author Ginny Silver. Tell Me What the Earth is Saying is available for booksellers through Ingram and consumers can locate an independent bookseller using Indie Bound to support small businesses, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or wherever books are sold.
