Alliance Team Shares Climate Kids Book Club at KPBS Be My Neighbor Day

Earlier this year, the Climate Science Alliance team distributed over two hundred Climate Kids Book Club bags and led hands-on art and reading activities with excited children and families at KPBS’s first ever “Be My Neighbor Day”. Learn more on today’s blog!

On March 25th, 2023, the Climate Science Alliance team was excited to join KPBS for San Diego’s very first Be My Neighbor Day, a free event for young children, families and the community to learn, share and explore ways to care for each other and the environment.

As part of the Climate Science Alliance’s Climate Kids Book Club, we gave away 200+ Book Club bags that contained a reading guide, coloring book, and art supplies to learn about climate change through a kid-friendly, hopeful lens. Attendees also had the opportunity to sit and read our Book Club books in our reading nook and make and decorate their own seed paper bookmark.

All of the resources provided in the Climate Kids Book Club bags can be accessed online and books can be checked out at your local library or at any of our Climate Kids hubs.

The day was filled with many fun events including a meet and greet with PBS KIDS’ beloved friend and fan-favorite, Daniel Tiger! The event was a huge success and reached registration capacity with over 600 community members in attendance. We were overwhelmed by the excitement and support for this event and look forward to continuing to support our friends and neighbors at KPBS’s Be My Neighbor Day next year!

Special thank you to the KPBS team for their invitation to collaborate on such a special event for the community, and for their generous support of our art supplies.
