Gr 4–7—A look at climate change and its effects from six different but connected angles. Each entry contains six chapters, along with two easy-to-follow activities. While there's no shortage of diagrams or photos, the bright color scheme and dated design may deter some readers. Sidebars helpfully extend the text, defining terms or providing examples. A glossary, a list of suggested reading, and text comprehension questions are appended; however, no factual information sources are cited. The authors include the opinions of climate skeptics but clearly privilege scientific facts. Open-ended questions and potential action items let readers come to their own conclusions. The "Before & After Reading Activities" section may be useful in an educational setting.
VERDICT Not first purchases, but, if nothing else, consider Climate Change and Food Production and Planet Protection.
