Welcome to The Nature Club
The Nature Club books invite you to explore the outdoors with Izzy, Tai, Brooke, Zack, and Miguel. Through their adventures, they learn to help the wildlife they love while helping each other with the challenges of growing up.
Is the swim-a-thon doomed?
When Zack falls off a ladder and breaks his arm, the worst part isn't his injury--it's missing the Nature Club's upcoming swim-a-thon. Stuck sitting by the creek while the others practice their strokes, Zack discovers a froglet with a damaged limb and names him Rana. Zack and his friends spring into action to help the froglet, only to discover more and more human-made hazards for the little frogs. As Zack's story unfolds in parallel with Rana's, he learns how important it is to care for the environment. In the end, Zack and his friends from the Nature Club plot out how to do exactly that--for the frog and themselves.

A well-balanced book that shows one young Chinese girl's experience immigrating with her family to California. At times funny, heart-wrenching, and innovative, this book shows the difficulties of starting over in a new country in a way that a young reader would be able to understand. A great book to open our eyes to the different and sometimes unseen ways people struggle and how we can make the world a better place by being more inclusive and willing to listen to other's stories. - Jessica
