How Literature Helps Raise Environmental Awareness in Children

Literature has a significant impact on the way people think and feel when it comes to nature and the environment. Whether in the form of fiction or non-fiction, poetry, drama, and the likes, literature serves as a channel through which knowledge and information on how the environment is faring in the current times are being sent out. Especially when it comes to the young kids, children’s books serve as the best medium to teach them how nature came to be, its reason and purpose, and how important it is that men should take care of and protect the environment in which they live in. Who’s Knocking At My Door?: A Country Pond Tale by Terrie Stadler is a quintessential entertaining children’s book that inspires and motivates its young readers to learn to love and protect nature and its inhabitants.
