Description

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.

Will Izzy make friends in her new school?

Izzy's family is moving to a big city at the end of the summer, and she is filled with dread. She'll start fifth grade at a new school where she doesn't know anyone. Meanwhile, a bird she names Se or Wilson also faces a big move. He'll soon migrate south for the winter--a journey full of peril. As Izzy's adventure unfolds in parallel with Se or Wilson's, it seems Izzy's worst fears may come true. It's only by finding her inner courage--with a little help from her friends in the Nature Club--that Izzy can find her wings and truly take off.

"Taking Flight makes learning fun; it conveys important biological concepts by relating them to personal experiences. It's brilliant "
