Greystone Kids. Apr. 2022. 96p. Tr $18.95. ISBN 9781771645911.
Gr 4-8–As a longtime environmentalist, Greenfield wants kids to know that they can make a difference. In this volume, he touches on environmental topics like food waste, water, and energy issues affecting our planet today. Each section contains ways that Greenfield has helped the environment himself, followed by smaller get-started ways for students to do the same. Readers who are interested in environmental topics and want to help will be inspired. Greenfield leads by example, and kids will look at his ideas and see that they can help out, too. Many of his suggestions are easy and small, and thus manageable for young readers to embark on independently. Readers will be drawn in by the full-color photographs that make large statements throughout the book.
VERDICT An inspirational addition to any nonfiction section in an elementary or middle school library. Perfect for those who want to know more about how they can help the environment and inspire change in their communities.–
