9781580892667: A Warmer World (Junior Library Guild Selection (Charlesbridge Hardcover))

Adapt, or face extinction.

The golden toad used to inhabit the cloud forests of Costa Rica, but when the weather became too warm and dried up the pools where its eggs hatched, the golden toad disappeared. It has not been seen in more than twenty years. This amphibian is just one of several species in A WARMER WORLD, a thought-provoking and informative account of how global climate change has affected wildlife over the past several decades.

Species by species, acclaimed nonfiction children's author Caroline Arnold describes how warmer weather alters ecosystems, forcing animals to adapt or become extinct. Arnold's clear and straightforward text is complemented by Jamie Hogan's collage-style illustrations. Reminiscent of a nature journal, the book will inspire readers to start their own research into this significant global issue.

A glossary and listing of websites and books for further exploration is included.

Product Description:

Over the past several decades, our world has been warming at a faster rate than ever before. Acclaimed nonfiction author Caroline Arnold describes how the climate change has affected ecosystems around the world and how animals within these ecosystems have adapted.

About the Author:

Caroline Arnold grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and spent her summers at a small camp in northern Wisconsin. It was there that she developed her love of animals and the outdoors, delighting in catching sight of deer leaping through the underbrush or a porcupine scrambling up a pine tree. Caroline began writing children's books nearly twenty years ago when her own two children were small. After receiving her MA in art from the University of Iowa, Caroline planned on writing and illustrating her own books, but these days most of her books are illustrated with photographs. She now uses her keen sense of observation to learn about her subjects and pass along her close-up views to children. "My hope is that if kids fall in love with the animals in my books, as I do when I write about them, they will be concerned for the animals' future and want to do what they can to protect the animals and the places where they live." Books by Caroline Arnold include Birds: Nature's Magnificent Flying Machines, Shockers of the Sea, African Animal (Morrow Junior books), Dinosaur Mountain (Clarion Books), which was named an ALA Notable Book. In 2005, Caroline was awarded the Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Nonfiction Award. In addition to writing, Caroline spends much of her time reading, gardening, and traveling. She visits many elementary schools telling children about her books and encouraging them to read and write. Caroline also teaches part-time in the Writers' Program at UCLA Extension School. Caroline lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Arthur. Jamie Hogan grew up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. She began her freelance career in Boston, with work appearing frequently in the Boston Globe. She taught editorial illustration at the Art Institute of Boston and became active in the Graphic Artists Guild. Her illustrations have been included in American Illustration, PRINT Magazine, Graphis, and the Society of Illustrators. Jamie and Marty Braun married in 1988 and moved to San Francisco. Jamie s work evolved into a collage style and her clients included San Francisco Focus, Mother Jones, and the Los Angeles Times. Jamie and Marty moved to Maine in 1992. Her recent work includes charcoal pencil, pastel and paper collage. Besides skiing through the island woods in winter and motorcycling along the coast in summer, Jamie beachcombs with her daughter and dog, incorporating the shards she finds into mosaics. She teaches illustration at Maine College of Art in Portland.
