HGSE Gutman Library Virtual Book Talk: The Voices Of The Trees

Dive into a parallel world of the lives of trees where they show us how we humans harm nature, living beings, resources, the climate, being part of the same ecosystem and causing great damage to our planet. The trees teach us to be more caring and collaborative with our environment through six different stories developed in a different country within the Americas in different contexts such as a plaza, a park, a school, a museum, and a nature reserve.

This book will help children discover different relevant aspects of global citizenship; a theme that has been recognized as a priority for the curricula of a new educational paradigm. Among these aspects, they will find topics focused on:

  • The celebration and integration of diversity.
  • Social solidarity with the less fortunate.
  • Empathy with others who are different from us.
  • Responsibility for planetary sustainability.
  • And the validation of feelings of vulnerability and hope.

Join authors Fernando M. Reimers, Ed.M.'84, Ed.D.'88, and Elisa Guerra, Ed.M.'21, in conversation about their book on Monday, October 3 at 12–1 pm ET
