Reviews for this series:

 

Environmental issues are a constant and growing concern, so it’s important for children to become aware of how they can become responsible for taking care of the world around them. This series helps achieve that goal by stressing the old adage “reduce, reuse, recycle” as well as by discussing modern concerns and possible solutions to problems like global warming, carbon footprints, dependency on oil, and endangered species. Complex concepts are presented with clear language. Color charts, graphics, text boxes, and photos all work together to provide information in an appealing way… A solid, engaging series that makes the topic interesting and accessible to young readers.
