Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This text is part of the "Junior Library of Money" series specifically focused on introducing young adults to issues related to the world of money. This particular text, focusing on sustainable lifestyles in a changing economy, contains 26 detailed chapters that begin with a general introduction to the question "What is a Sustainable Lifestyle?" and then proceed to discuss everything from what people actually need to live and survive to what happens when individuals and countries create unsustainable situations that directly impact their future. The highlight of this text is to focus on small steps that the average person can take to create a sustainable lifestyle; recycling, food choices, energy considerations, and shopping choices all get a careful look. One aspect of this series, the "Here's What You Need to Remember" section, is especially good in this text as it helps to focus teen readers on what they need to keep in mind as they leave the book and go out into the world to follow its suggestions. The "Further Reading" and "Find Out More on the Internet" sections provide additional useful information. This book, and the series in general, provides an interesting look at issues with financial issues and implications that young adults should be able to read and understand as they start to focus on making more of their own decisions. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
