Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Myrna Dee Marler
This short chapter book details for children, through many pictures and a text designed for grade schoolers, the life and contributions of David Suzuki, a Canadian professor in biology and zoology, who has also become a radio and television personality. He has unceasingly labored to sound the alarm about the fact and the potential disaster of continued global warming. Still alive and still lecturing around the world, Suzuki has a web page students can go to for more information. Designed for grade schoolers, this book details in the text Suzuki's early life in Japanese internment camps, his struggle for education, his lifelong dedication to the issue of climate change, his workaholic habits, and fight against racism in any form. For those who want to know about the pioneering work done by leaders in the field of living green, this book and the series are a great start. It comes with an index and is part of the "Voices for Green Choices" series. Reviewer: Myrna Dee Marler
