Angela Royston has written many books for young people, including books about people at work, animals, health and the environment.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2–3—Oceans provides simple information regarding the health of the Earth's water sources. Facts about the need for the water from rivers, lakes, and oceans are introduced in plain language. Pollution, overfishing, and drought are touched on. Some oversimplifications may lead to confusion. On a page describing marine animals, the text notes that most live in shallow waters along coastlines. However, the accompanying illustrations include whales, tuna, and sharks. In Polluted Air, the causes and results of, and possible solutions to, the problem are examined. Colorful photographs and illustrations appear throughout. A rosy scenario of innovations that may solve the issue presents mostly Asian scenes, although no countries are identified.
