Nature in Children's Books

This article mentions a drop in nature as portrayed in children's books.  However, I've seen other articles about a shift in buying patterns, such that old classics are more popular than recent releases.  Maybe that will help counteract this trend.

When I write for children -- I've done some poems and a few stories -- I generally aim for a sense of wonder.  I find nature fascinating, so it's common for me to pick that as a theme.  "Your Friend the Stick" appeared in Nature's Child  ezine last year.  I'd like to see more people using nature, not as a preaching point, but just as a place to explore.
