Because I Can't Get Enough: Earth Heroes Part Deux

As I wrote the other day (in "Wall o'Fame: Earth Heroes!"), these "Earth Hero Series" books are my new classroom favorites, and I can't get enough of them.

Author Carol Malnor is the author of two of them (Earth Heroes: Champions of the Wilderness and Earth Heroes: Champions of Wild Animals).  To make the stories come even more to life with your students, click this link below to hear a 10-minute audio interview with Carol Malnor as she discusses Jane Goodall and 4 other environmentalists in her "Champions of the Wild Animals" book:

Earth Heroes: Champions of Wild Animals (Earth Heroes Series)Earth Heroes: Champions of the WildernessEarth Heroes: Champions of the Ocean (Earth Heroes Series)

It's always fascinating to hear what an author has to say about his/her own book.  Not to mention, kids always get so much out of hearing authors speak.  Listening to the audio like this is also a great way to investigate the reading skill "author's purpose!"

Another great resource for lesson plans and to find Carol Malnor's blog "Out My Backdoor" along with tons of other teachers' resources for other great books for kids, go to:  When you're their, click the "teachers and parents" link!
