Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamaica Johnson Conner
Cheel carefully defines and explains the concept of global warming in this book, which is part of the "Disaster Alert!" series: "Global warming is the gradual rise of the Earth's temperature. In some areas, the temperature has gone up by as much as 7 degrees Fahrenheit (or 3.8 degrees Celsius) over the past 50 years. This rapid rise has been linked to the way humans live today. Many scientists believe that Earth will continue to become warmer and endanger lives by changing environments and animal habitats." Cheel primarily focuses on probable causes and consequences of global warming seen in nature, such as the melting of glaciers, bleaching of coral reefs, and even animal extinction. In addition, the scientific processes or theories and prevention methods are explained. The table of contents, glossary, and index provide easy access to the information. Creative, graphic organization with charts, photographs, and colorful textboxes add emphasis to the content. This piece would be a helpful addition to an earth science curriculum.
