Climate Justice Now: Picturebooks that Support Learning About Relationality as Part of Climate Education
By Rebecca Woodard and Kristine M. Schutz

Document: Article  

Introductory Paragraph:  This column is the second in a three-part series focusing on exploring children’s picturebooks that support learning about anchoring themes of climate education with elementary-aged children. We conceptualize the second anchoring theme as relationality. Relationality emphasizes that we have a responsibility to live in relationship to and in care for both other human beings and the natural world. We see this idea enacted as humans appreciate, take responsibility for, and care for the Earth and our communities, as opposed to simply extracting what we need from them.
