Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This potpourri or hodgepodge of information about many aspects of environmentalism, from the "I Want to Be..." series, is fine for browsing by younger students, but less useful for those seeking specific information because it lacks a table of contents and index. Types of environmentalists and their work are introduced briefly. The two-page spreads include information about recycling, environmental education programs, high-tech research projects, el Niño, endangered species, and efforts to preserve or improve the environment, along with what the reader can do to help. There is an "environmental vocabulary," a brief history of environmentalism, and examples of famous environmentalists. The upbeat message is supported by the many very clearly printed color photographs, often six or more per double page. Considerable information is provided in them, along with busy, happy youngsters. 2000, Maze Productions Inc./Harcourt Inc., Ages 8 to 14, $18.00 and $9.00. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-A brief, unfocused book. Two-page spreads cover the history of the environmental movement, influential books and personalities, eco-issues, El Ni-o, recycling, and types of environmentalists. Although a variety of careers are mentioned, students interested in pursuing a particular job in this field or researching one for an assignment will have to look elsewhere for specific information. Readers may also be frustrated by the haphazard organization and lack of index and table of contents. The many glossy, full-color photographs are attractive and include a photo gallery of endangered species and an illustrated 10-topic vocabulary list.-Marilyn Payne Phillips, University City Public Library, MO Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
This glossy, colorful title in the "I Want To Be" series has visual appeal but poor organization and a fuzzy focus, which limits its usefulness. Each double-paged layout introduces a new topic with six to eight full-color photographs and a single column of text. Topics include types of environmentalists, eco-issues, waste renewal, education, High School of Environmental Studies, environmental vocabulary, history of environmentalism, famous environmentalists, and the return of the eagle. Often the photographs have little to do with the text or are marginal to the topic. For example, a typical layout called "Some Alternative Solutions" has five snapshots superimposed on a double-page photograph of a California wind farm. The text discusses ways to develop alternative forms of energy and "encourage environmentally friendly lifestyles." Photos include "a healer who treats a patient with alternative therapy using sound and massage," and "the Castle," a house built of "used tires and aluminum cans." Elsewhere, "Did You Know . . . " shows a dramatic photo of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, but the text provides odd facts such as " . . . that in Saudi Arabia there are solar-powered pay phones in the desert?" Some sections seem stuck in, a two-page piece on the effects of "El Niño" or 50 postage-stamp-sized photos of endangered species. The author concludes with places to write for more information and a list of photo credits. Pretty, but little here to warrant purchase. (Nonfiction. 9-11)
