Your book is a great resource for the classroom teacher. Renewable resource is a difficult concept for young children to grasp. This book not only addresses the concept at a level which third graders can comprehend, but also incorporates reading concepts such as informational text features (diagrams, pictures, definitions), and covers numerous state content standards across the curriculum. It would be a welcome addition to the classroom teacher's library. --Nancy McCracken, Media Specialist, Freedom Elementary, Liberty Township, OH
Catch the Wind provides an attractive, instructive, and welcome educational resource about wind power and electricity generation. Attractive because it combines graphics, photos, and information in a lively way; instructive because it covers in detail many aspects of wind power - which makes great reading for adults, too! - and welcome because there is strong demand for educational and classroom materials on wind power. Wind power is rapidly growing today and will be a key part of our energy future as we rely on clean, renewable electricity for many aspects of our daily life. --Thomas O. Gray, Director of Communications, American Wind Energy Association
