Today is Earth Day, a time to celebrate and honor this great planet we live on. As you’ve probably noticed, nature is a big influence on my writing and art. My book Sticky Burr: Adventures in Burrwood Forest is filled with animals and insects, and features selections from Sticky Burr’s journal about his forest life.
In honor of Earth Day 2013, I created a new printable page of nature activities featuring Sticky Burr and his friends. Feel free to download and print for your home or classroom.
