One day a little boy goes on a school trip and they have a picnic in a wood. The class start misbehaving - throwing litter, breaking branches, picking flowers, swatting bees - and the teacher explains to them why they need to look after nature. She shows them the consequences of picking wild flowers and leaving litter around, and continues by telling them the ways they can help protect the environment. An interactive picture book, this text satisfies the National Curriculum for geography at Key Stage 1 where pupils are required to recognize how the environmnet may be improved and sustained. This text teaches the consequences of picking wild flowers, and how to protect the environment. Designed for parents and teachers to use with children, this text can be used as a basis for conversation. Notes for parents and teachers at the back suggest activities based on the topic, and links to the revised curriculum.
