Nicola Barber is an experienced author and editor of children's non-fiction books.From School Library Journal:
Gr 5-8–Each title successfully presents both sides of a contemporary issue. Cloning provides helpful definitions and explanations of genetic engineering and looks at the numerous ways this process influences our lives from animal and research cloning to embryo testing and genetically modified foods. Death Penalty discusses the use of and debate about the death penalty throughout history, raising awareness of religious perspectives, costs, connections to race and poverty, and the concept of justice. In Animal Rights information about whether or not animals have the ability to suffer pain, issues of morality, and other concepts are presented, providing a foundation for readers to ponder the use of animals in product testing, whether we should eat meat or use animal products, and other concerns. Euthanasia examines what constitutes a good or bad death, medical intervention, living wills, and legal concerns about assisted suicide. The texts are straightforward, easy to understand, and have an appealing format. Chapters progress logically with helpful headings and subheadings. The numerous text boxes, captioned color photos, and reproductions add additional information.–Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NEα(c) Copyright 2013.
