Christine Petersen is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From Booklist:
Reviewed with Christine Petersen's Wind Power.
Gr. 3-5. The familiar small, square format and the large, well-spaced type of volumes in the long-running True Book umbrella series have been preserved in this new offshoot, Environment & Conservation. Petersen provides readers with a lucid picture of the sun and wind as natural forces before introducing some of the technology (windmills, turbines, solar panels) used to harness energy on a large scale. A few more diagrams (how a windmill works) would have been helpful, but the captioned photos are well chosen, and the science and the explanations of the technology are eminently clear. Each book ends with a forecast of the future that informs kids about the advantages and disadvantages of such renewable resources and speculates on their use in years to come. Slick paper, colored screens, and attractive page layouts contribute further to a fine addition to the True Book stable. Stephanie Zvirin
