Synopsis: FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Offers children simple, practical means of contributing to the efforts to save the planet, including 50 projects recommended by respected environmental groups.
From School Library Journal:
A practical and upbeat guide to saving resources and protecting the en vironment. Each brief chapter begins with an often humorous "Take a Guess," followed by an overview of a problem in "Did You Know," "What You Can Do," and "See For Yourself" sections. Statistics and measurements are translated into age-appropriate terms, such as comparing children's weight to the amount of garbage thrown away in a year. Simple demonstrations (counting cans in a supermarket) im press upon readers the vast quantities of materials and energy routinely used. As books that deal with pollution and/ or ecology generally present the prob lem first and append a chapter recom mending action, they lack the optimis tic and encouraging tone of this book. Some of the suggestions are not easy, and adult assistance and advice are em phasized. Parents and teachers will find this to be a useful guide for increasing awareness of environmental problems and a superb teaching tool. Black-and- white drawings decorate each page. Newton's Taking a Stand Against En vironmental Pollution (Watts, 1990) is for older readers.
