Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This text is part of a series that takes a look at different geographic features around our world. In this particular entry, the author shifts the focus just a bit to consider the impact of and from climate change on the various geographic regions of the Earth. This easy to follow book has a five chapter set-up followed by sections called, in order, True Statistics, Resources (a current grouping of books and websites and places to visit that address the topic with creativity and well-researched information), Important Words, an Index, and About the Author. The chapters focus on the idea of climate change and discuss the difference between natural change and what seems to be a more vigorous change in weather patterns n the last few decades. The author looks at the impact of human activities in a number of areas: greenhouse gases, loss of trees, and the overuse of fossil fuels, and then notes the problems created by inattention to those issues and how we might turn things around in the present. Excellent photos and graphics throughout further explain or share everything from the fact that ice core samples have allowed scientists to look back 800,000 years concerning climate to the surprising information that heat waves in Los Angeles are expected to increase 400 to 800 percent in the next 100 years. This is a great book in a strong series "A True Book" for younger students looking for information about geographic regions on Earth. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
