Books We Like
During each class of Upper Manhattan Forest School we accompany your snack with listening to a story. The books chosen for story-snack time represent the ideas and aims of our programming. As we seek to encourage compassion, inquiry, cultural diversity and knowledge of the environment, these stories inspire our young leaders to create a more connected and sustainable planet
We happily include books in other languages too. Here are some that we and participating parents have contributed.
