Back in January I wrote about interesting and different biographies that can be found in the library. One person I highlighted was John Muir, America’s environmentalist. Last week the latest copy of Appleseed Magazine was delivered to the library and low and behold it was all about John Muir. In case you didn’t know, Appleseed Magazine is a social sciences magazine for children ages 8-11. Like most classroom magazines each monthly edition focuses on a specific topic. For April 2011 it is Earth Day and John Muir. After reading the magazine from cover to cover here are some things I learned about John Muir.
- John Muir was an author and poet. His words inspired many people to learn to love and care for nature.
