A Great Pair of Books to Teach Kids about Living in Harmony with the Earth!

Si’ahl and the Council of Animals: A Story of Our Changing Climate for Children and Their Parents

Si’ahl & Friends Activity and Coloring Book

Jane Lister Reis and her sister, Margie Lister Muenzer have created a great book for kids on listening to the environment and caring for it. When the animals of the forest begin to suffer from the changing climate, Si’ahl, a bald eagle, calls a council of the animals. (The authors engaged in dialogue with the Duwamish Tribe about using the name Si’ahl, which is the Duwamish name of Chief Seattle, and honor him with this story). When the animals cry out for help, one family learns to listen to the animals and to work to care for our common home, Mother Earth. The book is illustrated with line drawings by Andrea Hoitis and it could be used as a small coloring book – although there is a larger “Si’ahl & Friends Coloring and Activity Book,” that is a great companion to the story book.

The Activity & Coloring Book has puzzles, mazes, even a grid for backyard birdwatching!

Jane Lister Reis lives in Seattle and is the founder of First Light Farms & Learning Center in Carnation, WA.
