Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gwynne Spencer
Part of the "One Small Step" series, which introduces key environmental issues and shows how everyone (even kids) can take small steps that make difference in habitat conservation and endangered species efforts, chapters in this volume include "Somewhere to Live," "Who Eats Who?," "Links in a Chain," "What Can Go Wrong?," "Breaking the Chain," "Why Do Habitats Change?," "Room for Everyone?," "Underwater Wildlife," "The Last Wilderness," "Wildlife at Risk," "Closer to Home," "Wildlife At School," "Make A Wildlife Garden," a glossary, websites page, and index. The illustrations are clear, photos are great, and interspersed throughout the book are factoids, called "One Small Fact," which kids will love. Each chapter includes a section, titled "I Can Make a Difference," which shows readers specific steps that can be taken to conserve habitats. The text is at about third grade reading level, in a nice clear typeface, and although many of the illustrations portray elementary age kids, this series could reach into middle school or even high school libraries where reading levels might be an issue.
