Tropical Sierra Foundation gave to the Ministry of Public Education the book “Tropic Joe’s Adventures”, last Thursday May 26th.
The publication is a children’s book that tells the story of the adventures of a little frog and its friends that are seeking how to defend the forest from the destruction caused by humans. This book also explains photosynthesis and it can be used as an environmental text in formal subjects such as Spanish, social studies, science, math, and others.
For a better world
Children, from age 9 to 11, planted 120 trees on land owned by Heredia’s utilities company, Servicios Públicos de Heredia, located near Barva Volcano, north of Heredia.
Fourth and Fifth grade students from the University Educational Center for Children and Adolescents, CEUNA, left their classrooms, and planted new life one morning so that Topic Joe’s cousins, the worms and the birds, could have better living conditions.
