Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The definition of "conservation" as used in this book is "the protection of natural resources such as wildlife habitats, soil, water, fossil fuels, minerals, and species." Conservation is necessary because we inhabit the only living planet of the nine planets that revolve around the sun. Without sunlight (but not too much of it) and an atmosphere, a planet cannot live. Even with those things, a planet may be polluted or depleted of its resources. This is where conservation comes in. The text is double-spaced and in a large font yet contains a challenging vocabulary. An ample number of pictures illustrate what would be difficult to imagine without them, such as glaciers, aerial views of excavation site and the earth from space and a mountain lion in flight from boulder to boulder. Excellent resources to aid readers in their study of conservation are found in the back of the book in the form of books, online sites and organization recommendations. An "Important Word" section defines unclear terms or words. The author is a middle school science teacher in Minnesota who enjoys wildlife and was formerly employed by the California Academy of Sciences, the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Geological Survey. Recommended. 2004, Children's Press/Scholastic, Ages 8 to 10.
