The current state of the environment affects all of us, from Saint Paul to countries across the globe. We have all played a part in how we got here, and we are all a part of the solution. Read Brave aims to unite residents around this topic — to seek understanding of the science, share stories about its impact, and work together toward solutions.
The two primary book choices for 2020 are The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline and Climate Justice by Mary Robinson.
For Read Brave Kids, SPPL has created three lists of suggested books. Red Balloon has chosen one favorite from each list to feature: The End of the Wild by Nicole Helget (Middle Grade), If Polar Bears Disappeared by Lily Williams (Early Grade), and Hey, Water! by Antoinette Portis (Picture Book).
