School Library Journal - 04/01/2022 Gr 6–8—This series summarizes the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs from the United Nations. Each title has about five chapters, always starting with an explanation about what SDGs are and why accessibility to fundamental human rights around the world is important. The next chapters cover how we can do the work at home, school, and in our communities to make sure the Sustainable Development Goals are met, such as raising awareness of the UN's 17 SDGs or starting a book club to explore each goal (Do the Work Quality Education). The series shows a diverse group of people from multiple countries, participating in the topic covered for each title and highlights people around the world raising awareness. While the amount of information could be overwhelming for younger readers, the format of the text is varied, using lists, infographics, real-world examples, and "Stop and Think" discussion questions to break up the details. Each title ends with suggestions on how readers can extend their learning, further research, a glossary, and index. VERDICT A thorough explanation of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals for upper middle grades. - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 04/01/2022 Enough food is produced to feed the planet’s nearly 8 billion people, according to this installment in Committing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals series (6 titles), but many individuals still experience hunger, malnutrition, and food insecurity. To achieve a world in which all people have enough to eat by 2030, the United Nations created 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). This book focuses on the second SDG: Zero Hunger. Straightforward yet encouraging text describes the effects of hunger and explains how Zero Hunger is attainable through smaller goals, such as supporting small-scale farmers. The second half of the book focuses on helpful actions young readers can take at home, at school, and in the community. Sidebars with expanded facts and guided questions throughout encourage further thought on this global issue. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
