Cool Idea of the Day: New York Sea Grant's Environmental Reading List


Four independent bookstores in upstate New York are partnering with New York Sea Grant, an environmental organization that focuses on issues involving the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, to feature titles on NYSG's Environ-Time Recommended Reading List.

The reading list features titles for children pre-K to 12th grade meant to foster a sense of environmental stewardship and educate children on topics like the biodiversity of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River as well as diversity in science.

The participating indies are Little Book Store in Clayton, N.Y., Kayleighbug Books in Morristown, N.Y., the river's end bookstore in Oswego, N.Y., and Golden Bee Bookshop in Liverpool, N.Y. 

Rebecca Kinnie, owner of Little Book Store, told InformNY: "The young people of the area are really the ones who are going to be growing up, knowing that it's an important thing to take care of the environment around them."
