Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7—10—These information-packed guides have a clear message: When it comes to being eco, you don't have to do everything, but there is no excuse for doing nothing. Teens with a variety of interests will find ways to go green-from revamping old clothing to buying locally grown food to organizing a community litter pick-up. Short sections of text (many cleanly divided by bulletin points), numerous sidebars, captioned color photos, charts, and diagrams will keep readers engaged. Case studies of innovative youth-run projects around the world, math formulas to calculate water flow, and detailed projects lend this series to use in various curriculum areas. Extra materials include quizzes, suggestions for further learning, and an ample index. Though the many links included in the texts may give this set a limited shelf life, and there has been a lot published on this topic, these titles meet Common Core State Standards and are a smart choice for librarians looking to replenish or replace materials.
