Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
Like the other books in the "Climate Change" series, this book is exceptionally timely. The eight chapters of the book deal with climate change and the potential impact on the world. The first two chapters, "Climate Change" and "The Temperate Region," define the concept and the region under discussion, explaining what distinguishes it from the other three climate zones. Chapters 3 and 4 focus on global warming and greenhouse gases, shifting the focus of the text to how humans are affected by climate change. This leads into chapters entitled "The Natural World of Temperate Zones" and "Humans in Temperate Zones," which further discuss what we can expect unchecked global warming to do to all who live in the temperate regions of Northern America and southern South America, Australia, most of Europe and Asia, and small sections of Africa. Post-it representations under the "Fact Zone" heading and color pictures underscore the author's case about global impact. The final two chapters focus on actions readers might take to affect climate change now and in the future; these round out a strong text that would be very useful to teachers who want to introduce the topic of climate change to students. The requisite glossary is included; I was a bit surprised that a list of websites or other books for additional reading was not provided. Nevertheless, this book and this series will be useful for upper elementary and middle school teachers who are looking for a solid introductory text/series on the subject. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.

Gr 5-8–This series is perfectly organized for students. The books all feature the same introductory information on climate change in general. They then discuss the general climate of the featured zone and the effects of global warming on its various biomes and creatures. Unique layout features serve as signposts and will help focus readers' attention. For example, the books make excellent use of color, including a color-coded table of contents that corresponds to the border color of each section. Each title also features an outstanding chart of possible effects of global warming on the area in question, listing “Possible Event,” “Predicted Result,” and “Impact” in short, bulleted statements. Each section of the chart is then expanded upon in later chapters. The series' only drawback is a lack of in-text references to outside sources and studies.
