Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
Tyler is a school boy who is part of the "Power Patrol." It is his job to look for ways to save energy. First Tyler explains what energy does. Energy is used to "heat buildings and light rooms. People even used energy to make my lunch box." Then Tyler tells why it is important to use less energy to help save the earth. When Tyler explains about some different types of energy there is a fact bubble that mentions that even though wind energy is clean, it is not perfect. Tyler finishes his story by helping to explain how to be on the "Power Patrol" at home. There is even a "Play the Power Patrol Game" at the end of the book to see if a reader can find all of the sources of power in a particular illustration. Young readers will enjoy this short story that reads more like a picture book than an informational book on energy. There are also quite a few gems in the text and illustrations that will help readers laugh (such as Tyler mentioning that "pizza energy" is his favorite to eat or his classmate making a funny face). A glossary, list of further resources, and a brief index complete the book. Reviewer: Joella Peterson
