How Do We Stop Climate Change?

Earth Aware Editions. Sept. 2021. 72p. Tr $19.99. ISBN 9781681885599.
Gr 2-5–This new entry to the climate change oeuvre is well thought out and designed. The book is organized around the current major questions and issues of climate change. Each chapter poses a question, then proceeds to outline the issues, impact, and possible solutions derived from the most up-to-date science and technology. Each page moves from left to right with a text block, then illustrative graphics, followed by a mind map (a diagram used to visually organize information). The graphics are appealing and make effective use of color. The tiny graphics of the mind maps are similar to emojis, which makes the book look contemporary. These enable readers to move around the book in a nonlinear way, and they can progress and even page back at their own pace and level of interest. There is a glossary and an index but no references or sources page.
VERDICT A good and appealing addition to climate change collections.
