Wildlife Over Waste

I have a great little quote on my office bulletin board that reads: “Animals don’t litter. Humans do.” The manuscript that I’m seeking representation for has led me to books with similar themes of animals, human carelessness on habitats, and climate change. The month of March has three days celebrating plants and animals, so I decided to provide a list of middle grade novels that correspond to each of the days.
