Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
As we move into a new millennium, issues related to our environment appear to be steadily moving to the forefront. As people hack down rain forests, create deserts where once there was arable land, increase the amount of acid rain and pour various forms of pollution into the water and air, we are forced to consider environmental factors and their effects upon our daily existence. This science book provides elementary grade readers an opportunity to come in touch with key elements of environmental study. Topics such as deforestation, green house effects and pollution are each touched upon in a way that should help children think about our world and the interconnectedness of all life. Projects, activities and games are also included that touch upon environmental themes. This introductory text will be enjoyed by kids and provides an excellent jumping off point for more active learning opportunities in environmental science. 2001, Gareth Stevens, . Ages 7 to 9. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
