Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-A solid, reader-friendly choice for students learning about ecology, conservation, and endangerment of the world's forests. The nine chapters are short yet comprehensive, breaking up the topic into easily digestible components. Color illustrations appear on almost every page, and sidebars and insets focus on related information. A feature called "Careers in Focus" profiles foresters, botanists, tree planters, and environmental officers and describes duties, education requirements, interests, and Web sites for exploration beyond the text. From beginning to end, this is a concise and interesting title.-Laurie von Mehren, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
