Acid Rain

Acid Rain

by Christina G. Miller, Louise A. Berry

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-8 A guide for research and a good supplement to other material on this topic. In addition to defining acid rain and its causes and effects, Miller and Berry include a number of projects and demonstrations. Readers are encouraged to read periodicals, keep a journal, and make tests for themselves. Easily obtainable articles such as vinegar and toilet paper are required for the tests. Government and private agencies are listed with their addresses, and readers are urged to avail themselves of their information and services. Gay's Acid Rain (Watts, 1983), which is more detailed and for slightly older readers, is included in the bibliography of this book. McCormick's Acid Rain (Watts, 1986) is superbly illustrated but is on a lower reading level. The projects in this volume are its best feature, although there is some inconsistency in the use of metric and English measures.Meryl Silverstein, Meyer Levin JHS, Brooklyn
