Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
A practical and upbeat guide to saving resources and protecting the environment. Each brief chapter begins with an often humorous ``Take a Guess,'' followed by an overview of a problem in ``Did You Know,'' ``What You Can Do,'' and ``See For Yourself'' sections. Statistics and measurements are translated into age-appropriate terms, such as comparing children's weight to the amount of garbage thrown away in a year. Simple demonstrations (counting cans in a supermarket) impress upon readers the vast quantities of materials and energy routinely used. As books that deal with pollution and/or ecology generally present the problem first and append a chapter recommending action, they lack the optimistic and encouraging tone of this book. Some of the suggestions are not easy, and adult assistance and advice are emphasized. Parents and teachers will find this to be a useful guide for increasing awareness of environmental problems and a superb teaching tool. Black-and-white drawings decorate each page. Newton's Taking a Stand Against Environmental Pollution (Watts, 1990) is for older readers. --Meryl Silverstein, American Museum of Natural History, New York City
