With Earth Day just around the corner, it’s more important than ever to celebrate the natural world around us and learn and practice simple ideas to care more for our shared special Earth.

Brightly Storytime LIVE! had their latest event this month, which you can now watch here!

From magnificent oceans to lush forests to sprawling deserts and every view in between, readers will be inspired to see the world in new ways and embark on adventures to discover new wild wonders.

Catch up on a wildly adventurous hour with Brightly Storytime host Ms. Linda and readings from:

Micha Archer, author of Wonder Walkers

Ambreen Tariq, author of Fatima’s Great Outdoors

Author and nature lover Ben Hoare also joined to show how we can all discover the treasures our own environments hold around us! All students tuning in were encouraged to share a treasure they’ve found or seen in their own backyard, local park, or nature outing.
